Time picked its person of the year and the winner is (drumroll) none other than Ben Bernanke. He's been running the Federal Reserve since before the economic crisis began. Is he on the list to be scolded? No! That would make too much sense. Instead, we are supposed to thank him for losing 7 million jobs!
I can't think of a better selection right off hand than Ben Bernanke.
Adolph Hitler was TIME's "Man of the Year" in 1939.
TIME's criteria is "importance," not "goodness."
Who did more damage to the world in 2009 than Ben Bernanke?
Not even Obama.
Obama does nothing unless Bernanke funds it.
