Ben Bernanke quotes

May 01 2017

It's not really about trade. It's not really about imports and exports. It's about where revenue's taxed. The idea is revenues should be taxed where it's earned. If we were starting to design the system from scratch this would make a lot of sense and it would not have those implications you talk about. It's very interesting in principle but it's hard to get from here to

If Glass-Steagall had been in effect, we couldn't have had some of the failing firms taken over. JPMorgan took over Bear Stearns, and so

You have to recognize realistically that A.I. is qualitatively different from an internal combustion engine in that it was always the case that human imagination, creativity, social interaction, those things were unique to humans and couldn't be replicated by machines. We are coming closer to the point where not only cashiers but surgeons might be at least partially replaced by

I think the Republican perspective, which I assume Gary Cohn is thinking about, although I don't know, is to go back to the old world before the crisis, where you had free-standing investment banks and importantly, from the perspective of the free-standing investment banks, they weren't controlled.

Some of it is economic inequality, disruption from trade and technology, slow productivity growth, which means slow wage growth. We might have lower tax rates, maybe balanced to some extent by closing some loopholes, that would be a better policy. I don't think it's going create a productivity miracle or anything like that, but it would be more efficient. It would probably improve investment a little

Apr 25 2017 - Immigration

There is this kind of partisan coloring. It is really striking. The election result completely reversed people's views of the state of the economy. Republicans who thought that we were in a dystopia now think things look great, and Democrats, the opposite. And it shows that it isn't all based on an objective assessment of the economy. I think a lot of the populist reactions in the world, perhaps even more so than in the United States, is against immigration, which reflects cultural

I think politically it seems very unlikely to happen. I think there is scope for smart infrastructure investment to be helpful.

Apr 25 2017 - Japan

The U.S. has done so much better than most of the rest of the world. I mean if you have an international perspective and you travel around the world, then you hear from policy makers or average people in other countries: 'Boy, the U.S. is doing great. We wish that Europe or Japan could do as

I think the left or Democratic view of Glass-Steagall is we're going to break up these universal banks, we're going to reduce their political power, but we're not going to deregulate – we're going to make all the components subject to tough
