So this picture of Ben Bernanke as a kid as been going around the web of late. Yes, it’s a joke about how much Bernanke likes to throw money around via quantitative easing and or his nickname of “Helicopter Ben”, coming to save the day with his printing press.
Bernanke, a student of The Great Depression, believes that buying assets will keep interest rates low and prevent a deeper collapse in the economy – plus, stop deflation. But where’s the famous Ben Bernanke beard? Can this really be Bernanke without a beard? He sure looks like he’s having a good time throwing money out the window.
