Neel Kashkari on the Economy and the Fed in His Own Tweets – Real Time Economics

Neel Kashkari, a prominent business executive and one-time candidate for governor of California, has been chosen to be the head of the Federal Reserve’s regional bank in Minneapolis.

Neel Kashkari, chosen to take the helm at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis next year, is a former banker, not an economist. His views on central bank policy aren’t publicly known.

But he’s been a prolific presence on social media, where he acknowledges no one fully understands the economy, defends Ben Bernanke and the bailout of AIG, and once opined the president should look beyond Janet Yellen and Larry Summers as options for Fed chief.
