Trump to pick Powell as next Fed chair: WSJ
    2017-November-3  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE White House has notified Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell that the U.S. President Donald Trump intends to nominate him as the next leader of the central bank, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The president had settled on Powell by Saturday and spoke with him Tuesday, the report said, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Trump recently finished interviews of five candidates for the next Fed chair, including Powell, Stanford University Economist John Taylor, former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh, White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and current Fed Chair Janet Yellen, whose term expires next February.

Trump said Wednesday that he planned to formally announce his pick for the Fed chair Thursday, adding “you’ll be extremely impressed by this person.”

If confirmed by the Senate, Powell, a lawyer and former U.S. Treasury official, would be the first Fed chair in three decades without a Ph.D. in economics.

Powell delivered a speech at a roundtable in New York on Wednesday morning but dropped no hints about his impending appointment to lead the central bank.

“He would represent continuity of the Fed system and culture but a break from the predominance of monetary policy as the core background of the chair,” Aaron Klein, an economic studies fellow at the Brookings Institution, was quoted by the Wall Street Journal as saying.

The appointment of Powell is likely to be well received on Wall Street, as he has never dissented from any monetary policy decision since becoming governor in May 2012.

He is widely expected to continue Yellen’s gradual and cautious strategy in tightening monetary policy after taking the helm of the central bank.

“The healthy state of our economy and favorable outlook suggest that the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) should continue the process of normalizing monetary policy,” Powell said in June at the Economic Club of New York, referring to the Fed’s policy-making committee.

“The committee has been patient in raising rates, and that patience has paid dividends,” he said. (Xinhua)
