Janet Yellen Deserves a Glass of Riesling

Janet Yellen smiling for the camera

Who Deserves a Glass of Riesling?
Dr. Janet Louise Yellen Deserves a Glass of Riesling.

Because, Janet was just confirmed as the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, 

the first woman to occupy this chair…much like she was the first woman to be the Chair of the Federal Reserve in 2014…back in the late 1990s, she chaired the Council of Economic Advisors. Damn, so many chairs*…Janet deserves a throne!
*Janet is the first individual to have occupied all three roles…
 move over Joseph Stiglitz, I have a new economic hero to worship!

Because, at 5’3”, Janet towers over her economic peers
 (who knew there was a height requirement to oversee the Federal Reserve?!).
Because, Janet can “pop a collar, rock a power bob,”
 as illustrated / illuminated by Dessa, in her Lin-Manuel-esque ode to Janet, 

“Who’s Yellen Now?”
(check out the tune on Spotify: HERE IS YOUR SONG!!!)
(P.S. it took Alexander Hamilton 226 years to get his hip hop shout out…
it only took Janet a few days).
Because, Janet has a massive task ahead…

addressing growing inequality / 
convincing Congress to pass a much-needed $1.9 trillion stimulus package / 
a $15.00 an hour minimum wage +++.
