Ben Bernanke: Tough Guy

Ben Bernanke: Tough Guy: "Ben S. Bernanke rattled world financial markets Monday with his tough talk about combating inflation, but he also buffed up his image as a strong Federal Reserve chairman committed to the fight, analysts said yesterday.
'He reintroduced testosterone to the inflation-fighting resolve of the Fed,' said Diane Swonk, chief economist of Mesirow Financial Inc., an investment management firm. 'This is a pure male thing. He said to the markets, 'You think I'm a wimp? Take me on.' '"
