How Will Dollar React as Clinton Gains on Trump?

Brendan Brown

Citigroup Inc. on Tuesday posed an unspeakable question: will a political storm sweep Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen after the election that will force her to quit before her term ends in February 2018? Amid one of the most polarized U.S. elections in living memory, monetary policy has been thrust firmly into the campaign limelight. Republican nominee Donald Trump has attacked Yellen in highly personal terms, questioned the independence of the Fed, and suggested the Chair could be replaced with a partisan choice under a Trump administration. Brendan Brown discusses the outlook for the presidential campaign on the US economy with Anna Edwards on “Bloomberg Surveillance.”
