ABSTRACT
The article speculates on the relationship between the new Federal Reserve Board, headed by Chairman Ben Bernanke and the Department of the Treasury. Bernanke's predecessor, Alan Greenspan, tended to discount Treasury at the expense of the Secretaries. A friendly relationship between Chairman Bernanke and Secretary Hank Paulson will improve the American economy. Their first test comes in Wal-Mart's application to charter an industrial loan company.
