Bernanke – Time Person of the Year

Foreign Policy recently named Bernanke the top thinker in the world. And now Time has named him as the person of the year.

The cover story is here

Very Long interview of Bernanke is here

There are some excellent photogalleries:

One of them says Bernanke married his wife Anna via a blind date:

After Harvard, Bernanke went on to pursue a Ph.D. at MIT, where he met — on a blind date — Anna, a student at Wellesley, who would become his wife. They have two children, a son in medical school and a daughter who has just finished college.
I read the same story for Robert Merton as well.
Paul Krugman says Bernanke should be worried. There is a golden rule that business guys who make it to cover stories of a famous magazine, their companies stocks should be shorted. He points to a previous Time magazine cover which has Greenspan, Summers and Rubin….:-)
Delong also has a nice post
