Is there any way to find out what Ben Bernake invests in?



Is it public record or anything?

Also, how much does he make doing his job?

In addition to his $196,700 salary as Fed Chairman, Bernanke earns more than $ 200,000 per year in royalties on two textbooks he wrote as well.

I'm afraid to buy KO or V since they are over bought. I plan on holding a long time. Just expect the market in general to drop some soon.

Why does Sam's club not accept Visa credit cards?

Did discover give them a massive discount to be the only allowable card?

Do they get more percentage for CC than they do debit?

Obviously it's because of the stocks Bernanke owns......

It's like he baits TheBigFella into threads. "Anyone here own any gas stations?". BigFella chimes in, proceeds to get hit with questions about what brand of cigs PM sells overseas.

I've never started a gas station thread. Also, I didn't know what Ben puts his money in.

Fed chairmen and governors can't own individual securities. I'm not 100% sure on the mutual fund portion but I do know its extremely restrictive.

I've never started a single gas station thread.

Also, I don't see how a question about Ben is related to PM.

So my example is a little exaggerated but you get my point.

BTW, what does Uncle Ben have to do with Sam's Club taking Visa?
