Welcome Federal Reserve Chairwoman!

yellen9In a few minutes, President Obama will be announcing his nomination of Janet Yellen as the first female head of the Federal Reserve. Lady Economist will continue it’s coverage with a more analytical look at the relevance of having a woman at the post as well as her own work as an economist and how it may bear on her ruling over the Fed (presuming she gets confirmed, which people are predicting she will). But in the meantime we welcome another glass ceiling shattered by this intelligent woman.

For now, I recommend reading about her own personal wealth reported on Gawker and her really weird personal interview from her senior year of high school that the NYTimes found and republished to learn about the person who may become the most powerful woman in world history.
