Person of the Year: Shaping the Path of Our Economy

In 2009, the American economy may have seemed a bleak scenario.

However, yesterday TIME coined Ben Bernanke Person of the Year (who happens to impact all of our lives). Bernanke is the chairman of the Federal Reserve. Although our economy in 2009 seemed to have a weak recovery, Bernanke helped us avoid an absolute calamitous depression. A weak recovery should be looked at least as some kind of recovery.

I’m not happy with where we are, but it’s a lot better than where we could be.

So indeed, Bernanke is a notable man. He has my respect for taking on the biggest challenge of 2009, and will be shaping the path of our economy for the next 4 years.

To the lessons we learned in 2009 and the new beginnings in 2010,

Amy
