Tonight in Amherst Massachusetts, Janet Yellen, while giving a speech titled, “Inflation Dynamics and Monetary Policy” appeared to have had a stroke, live on stage.
Initial reports claim it wasn’t a stroke. <sarc> Perhaps the Russians poisoned her with polonium-210. </sarc>
Her reaction caused a stir in the markets, which then rebounded on the news that she would survive.
Apparently she’s doing fine and is heading off to supper. We’ll see.
From Zero Hedge:
One way or another, she doesn’t seem well. Whether it’s penis envy vis-a-vis Christine Lagarde, or another stroke, she looks as healthy and as in-the-loop as the global economy and the people paying for it. Or did she just ‘get it‘ that her monetary policy has played into the hands of the ‘International Order,’ as Barack Obama called it.
