The Fed Chairman Wore Sensible Shoes Today
Elizabeth Williamson of Real Time Economics, the home for "economic insight and analysis from the Wall Street Journal," analyzes Janet Yellen's first appearance before Congress today:
She took her seat at 10:01 a.m., clad in a monochrome suit and sensible shoes, carrying a black vinyl binder with rainbow-colored tabs. Once chided by an uncharitable commentator for wearing the same black dress twice in a row, Ms. Yellen hadn’t bought a new suit for the occasion, her spokeswoman, Michelle Smith, confided to a reporter. “I’ll try to come up with some color for you,” she whispered.
