President Obama will pick the first woman to head the Federal Reserve one of the world's most powerful jobs -- over a veteran Washington insider, economists surveyed by USA TODAY predict.
Thirty-two economists said they expect Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen to succeed Ben Bernanke as chairman next year. Four predicted Obama will nominate Larry Summers, his former economic adviser and President Clinton's Treasury secretary.
The survey was done last week amid a flurry of media reports suggesting that the field was narrowing to a choice between Yellen and Summers or that Summers was the front-runner.
