The race for Fed chairperson heating up…

From a survey of Bloomberg economists:

The person most likely to be Federal Reserve chair when Janet Yellen’s term expires in February is… Janet Yellen, according to a Bloomberg poll of Fed watchers. Her nomination comes with two big caveats, however: It’s seen as possible, not probable, and the competition is close behind.

The June 5 to June 8 survey asked economists to rank the three most likely candidates for the central-bank post. Yellen came in first in the poll, though her score was less than a third of the maximum possible. Four other candidates—Kevin Warsh, John Taylor, Glenn Hubbard and Gary Cohn—were bunched together after her.
