Bernanke’s speech in one word cloud

By Ezra Klein,

Ben Bernanke’s full speech is here. Reuters had the bright idea to make a word cloud:

As Matt Yglesias writes, “This doesn’t look like a speech about the crisis of joblessness plaguing America.” And indeed it wasn’t. Rather, it was a speech about how the Federal Reserve isn’t, as of this moment, going to do anything dramatic to combat the crisis of joblessness plaguing America. Nuts.”
