Yeah, the U.S. economy is in the dumps, it’s a deep ugly swamp, as Dr. Doom likes to say, so it’s no surprise that in four years Ben Bernanke will look like this. He’s been through hell. His normally sharply trimmed white beard overgrown and caveman like, the dignity and class gone – he’s let himself go. What did you expect?
Looking more like a struggling artist and less and less like Abe Lincoln as the years go by. I’m thinking he’ll quit before then though and go back to teaching. Will be looked upon as someone who saved the financial system? Time will tell.
