BERNANKE GETS FED NOD....Well, it's official. Ben Bernanke is George Bush's choice to replace Alan Greenspan as head of the Federal Reserve. Other people will likely have learned commentary on this choice, but not me. I'm just passing on the news.

UPDATE: Reviews from around the blogosphere:

  • Tyler Cowen: "An excellent choice and a first-rate economist." Gives him an overall grade of A-/B+.

  • Max Sawicky: Not bad. Better than Martin Feldstein, anyway.

  • Larry Kudlow: "A good choice." Better than Donald Kohn, that's for sure.

  • Brad DeLong: "A very good choice."
