Central Bankers as Celebrities

In Ec 10 this semester, monetary policy will be one of our major topics of study. In yesterday's Washington Post, you can read profiles of current U.S. monetary policymakers.

One of them is a former Ec 10 sectionleader. Can you guess which? I will give the answer in an update tomorrow.

Update: Kevin Warsh was an Ec 10 sectionleader while he was a student at Harvard Law School. Randall Kroszner has his PhD from the Harvard economics department, but I don't think he was an Ec 10 sectionleader while here. Ben Bernanke was an undergrad at Harvard and most likely began his economics career as a student in Ec 10.
