Janet Yellen on Principles & Values

 

 


Got permission from ethics lawyers before acting

Before calling the meeting, Yellen sought and received permission from Treasury ethics lawyers to do so and ensure that she was in compliance with her ethics agreement. Reuters reported here on Monday that such an ethics waiver might be necessary because of the over $700,000 in speaking fees Yellen was paid by Citadel LLC, a hedge fund that has been at the center of the GameStop trading saga.

Attended high school named for America's first Treasurer

Yellen, who was the chairperson of the Federal Reserve from 2014 to 2018, graduated as valedictorian from Fort Hamilton High School in 1963 and was elected to the school's Hall of Fame in 1993. "Fort Hamilton H.S. was named after the country's first Treasury secretary, so how amazing is it that the class of 1963's valedictorian has now been named to that position?" said Valerie Hodgson, president of the Fort Hamilton H.S. Alumni Association.
