Another flubbed interview with a central banker, thanks to the Financial Times

By: Chris Powell, GATA

 -- Published: Friday, 23 October 2015 | Print  | Disqus 

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Daniela Cambone of Kitco News isn't the only purported journalist who has flubbed her opportunity to question a central banker. (See: http://www.gata.org/node/15878.) The venerable columnist of the Financial Times, Martin Wolf, does the same today with his interview over lunch with former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke:

http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/0c07ba88-7822-11e5-a95a-27d368e1ddf7.html

Wolf plugs Bernanke's new book but in what must have been at least an hour with the former Fed chairman never poses a troublesome question, a question Bernanke doesn't want to answer, like questions about the Fed's secret interventions in markets and its resistance to freedom-of-information requests for documents.

So much for journalism. Bernanke's grilled halibut was tougher than Wolf.

Of course if Wolf was ever suspected of wanting to ask tough questions, Bernanke would never have accepted the invitation to lunch.
