Bernanke has been assimilated by the banking Borg.
Hey, Nobel Prize winning Paul Krugman wrote that, not I. Tossing out a Star Trek referrence, next generation no less, scores him a couple points, despite his Keynesian monetarist view. The Nobel Prize, well, at least in the case of Obama, another assimilant, we see how easily those things get tossed around.
These sorts of prizes are all over the place. The Ca$h Bull wishes Mr. Borg-of-the-Year luck in his upcoming senate confirmation.
