Dinner With Ben Bernanke

You would never guess Dr. Ben Bernanke was once one of the most powerful men in the world, indeed in all of human history.

There he sat across the table from me in a popular San Francisco Italian restaurant wearing a poorly made grey suit and a cheap pair of shoes, with rubber soles.

Only the occasional interruption from an autograph seeker belied his true importance.

I managed to snare Ben for a couple of hours on his national book tour promoting his just released “The Courage to Act.” Out only days, it was already at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list.

Ben is a different guy now. For a start, you can now call him “Ben” instead of “Governor.”

Remember those carefully parsed, measured, and deliberate words he used to use to explain Federal Reserve monetary policy and his future intentions? That guy is long gone.

The new Ben is funny, in a subtle, but wickedly clever manner. He is also instructional, thoughtful, even professorial. At the end of the day, Ben Bernanke is now you favorite faculty member.

Ben’s big revelation to me was that there were no potential triggers out there for another 2008-09 type financial crisis.
