https://vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/10/6/16428674/kevin-warsh-fedBack in the younger and more innocent days of January, 2006, then-President George W. Bush decided to appoint a nice-looking and well-off young man named Kevin Warsh to a seat on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors that he had no apparent qualification for.
And now, having acquired a resume that leaves him superficially qualified for the job, Warsh has landed on Donald Trump’s short list to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve when Janet Yellen’s term expires next year. And, frankly, he’d be the perfect Trumpian choice — he’s rich, rich people like him, congressional Republicans like him, he stands by Trump when Trump says morally outrageous things, and he doesn’t have a lot of time for self-reflection or accurate information about public policy.
