Ben Bernanke

An economist who became Chairman of the Federal Reserve in 2005. He presided over the 2000s economic crisis, supervising the bailouts and forced mergers of a number of American financial institutions. He was both lauded and criticized for favoring an expansive monetary policy, which proponents claimed kept the American economy from collapsing in the crisis, but which others argued would lead to inflation. He is considered an expert on the Great Depression.
