Bernanke Joins Brookings on First Work Day After Leaving Fed

Ben S. Bernanke arrived at the Brookings Institution to begin the next chapter in his professional life, the first workday after ending an eight-year term leading the Federal Reserve through crisis and recession.

The former Princeton University professor arrived at 8 a.m. at the Washington-based policy research center, where he will be a distinguished fellow in residence, said D.J. Nordquist, a Brookings spokeswoman. His successor, Janet Yellen, was sworn in as Fed chairman an hour later.
