Female economists aren’t the only ones who want Janet Yellen to be the new Federal Reserve chair.
A CNNMoney survey of 21 economists — mostly male — showed lots of support for Yellen and virtually none for the other frontrunner, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers. While gender was not a factor in the survey’s recipients, only two of the respondents were women. A separate survey by CNNMoney that polled only female economists, showed overwhelming support for Yellen.
Of the 21 respondents, 14 predicted Yellen will be tapped by President Obama to head the central bank. Only four think Summers will be picked.
