Bloomberg reports White House Considers Economist Judy Shelton for Fed Board
The White House is considering conservative economist Judy Shelton to fill one of the two vacancies on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors that President Donald Trump has struggled to fill.
She's currently U.S. executive director for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and previously worked for the Sound Money Project, which was founded to promote awareness about monetary stability and financial privacy.
Case for Monetary Regime Change
On April 21, Judy Shelton had an ope-ed in the Wall Street Journal: The Case for Monetary Regime Change.
Since President Trump announced his intention to nominate Herman Cain and Stephen Moore to serve on the Federal Reserve's board of governors, mainstream commentators have made a point of dismissing anyone sympathetic to a gold standard as crankish or unqualified.
