Herman 9-9-9 Cain to the Fed?

WASHINGTON — Payments to women who complained of sexual harassment. Accusations of groping. Allegations of a 13-year extramarital affair.

As President Trump moves ahead with his plan to nominate Herman Cain, a 2012 Republican presidential candidate, for a seat on the Federal Reserve’s board of governors, Republican lawmakers are being forced to confront a fresh round of uncomfortable allegations of sexual misconduct against women as the 2020 campaign begins.

A day after Mr. Trump made the choice of Mr. Cain official, Senate Republicans expressed quiet anxiety over the prospect of another #MeToo minefield even as the White House exalted the decision.

“President Trump’s statement that Herman Cain is ‘a truly outstanding individual’ is a message that the president of the United States is willing to ignore the allegations of a number of women who alleged that Herman Cain either sexually harassed them or had an affair with them,” said Gloria Allred, a lawyer who represented two of Mr. Cain’s accusers. “This message is an insult to women and should be condemned by the Republican Party and all those who care about respect and dignity for women.”

Lets hope that people aren't thinking that besides these allegations about his personal life, that he's a perfect candidate for the position.

Oh hell no. Those are very secondary factors IMO. His ideas about the economy were loved by Paul Ryan, the Club for the Growth and the usual suspects. Enough said.

John Maynard Keynes, the secular saint of left-leaning economists, called gold a “barbarous relic.” Milton Friedman, his counterpart on the right, said a gold standard for the dollar “is not feasible because the mythology and beliefs required to make it effective do not exist.” In 2012, a survey of leading economists by the University of Chicago Booth School of Management found that 34 percent disagreed with a gold standard and 66 percent disagreed strongly.

Yet both of President Donald Trump’s apparent picks for open seats on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Stephen Moore and Herman Cain, are interested in fixing the price of the dollar in quantities of gold...

The gold standard is impossible in today's economy - there isn't enough gold.

Gold is peddled heavily on Faux News.

My uncle the stock broker has a seven point rebuttal of gold. He posted it on a gold forum and got death threats.

Cheeto Benito wants someone he can order to lower the interest rates. Increases in rates since his election is costing him an estimated extra $5 million per year in interest fees on his heavily leveraged properties.

Yep. I don't think he does anything unless it is crooked.

One theory is that Cheeto caused the government shutdown to cut the yearly GDP so that interest rates would not be raised again.
