Jerome Powell, The Man In The Middle.

8 minutes

He's the head of the Nation's Central Bank. He's Jerome Powell, and this morning at 10:30 eastern time, he will take the podium at the 62nd annual meeting of the National Association of Business Economists.

The NABE is perhaps the nation's largest assemblage of real world economists. Many of these members are not the typical academic that you find at the usual economic conference. Instead these are the roll up the sleeves, and analyze their latest company balance sheer. They are more likely to be a company CFO rather than a college professor.

It's a background in which Powell should feel right at home. You see, Powell is not an academically trained economist. The first non academic Fed Chairman in a generation or two.
