The Best Writings of Ben S. Bernanke

Wednesday, February 01, 2006 | 06:06 AM

Now that Greenspan has ridden off into the sunset, what do we know about his successor, Dr. Ben Bernanke?  His temperment, economic views, stylistic approaches?

Actually, quite a lot. Fed Chair Bernanke (first time I wrote that) has been a prolific economic author. For the economic policy wonks out there, the following can be considered Bernanke's Greatest Hits:

I read Bernanke's "Savings Glut" article & am still not reassured about the exact nature of Chinese "savings." I wish someone could in simple terms demonstrate that the Chinese & Japanese aren't simply buying our Tres. bills with freshly printed Yen & Yuan/Renmimbi. That is, lending us money that really hasn't been saved but created.
