Want to read Ben Bernanke's homework?

Ben Bernanke hasn't been having much fun getting renominated. The other day, for instance, Sen. Jim Bunning handed him a questionnaire that ran to 70 items. Ever the dutiful student, Bernanke returned 34 single-spaced pages covering everything from the Lehman bailout to global coordination. Bunning's office has the document up for download here, and it's about as comprehensive a guide to Fed thinking as you're likely to find. If you want a crib sheet, Calculated Risk and Donald Marron both have excerpts.

Who's going to read it and explain it to Bunning?
