Statement From LIA Chief Economist John Rizzo on Yellen Confirmation
By: Dr. John A. Rizzo
"The Senate''s confirmation of Janet Yellen as Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve bodes well for a smooth transition at the Fed and continued pro-employment, pro-growth stimulus. Any tapering under Yellen''s watch is likely to be measured and gradual so as not to threaten further growth."
