Janet Yellen is an American economist and a banker, elected for Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States of America since early 2014.
She was born in New York on August 13, 1946.
Janet Yellen made history in 2014 when she became the first female head of the Federal Reserve. The Yale and Brown educated economist has barely had a moments rest since then: She took over shortly after the central bank began unwinding its recession era bond buying program and then deftly ushered markets through six cuts that brought monthly purchases to $ 0 from a peak of $ 85 billion.
In October 2015, Yellen received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Warwick.
