TIME’s 2009 Person of the Year

Postby SusieQ » Wed Dec 16, 2009 7:51 am

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke :-s
Remember September 2008? The month when the entire U.S. financial system almost collapsed? Ever since that pivotal moment, one person has been in the crosshairs, making decision after decision that has impacted nearly every American alive today.

That person is Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. Because of his monumental influence on the world’s most important economy, Bernanke has been named TIME magazine’s 2009 Person of the Year.

TIME Managing Editor Richard Stengel called the Federal Reserve “the most powerful, least understood government force shaping our lives” as he revealed his magazine’s choice live on TODAY Wednesday morning.

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs, who, however, has never learned to walk forward.

65% of the people evidently agree with us.


Do you agree with Time's choice of Ben Bernanke as Person of the Year?

This is not a scientific poll
No 65% 12265
