Kathryn Dominguez is a nominee for the Board of the Federal Reserve

President Obama wants a professor from the University of Michigan to have a major say in the financial policy of the nation.

The President is nominating Professor Kathryn Dominguez to fill one of two vacant seats on the board of the Federal Reserve.

WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter talked about the nomination with the Dean of the university’s Ford School of Public Policy, Susan Collins.

She says Dominguez would be an ideal addition to a Federal Reserve in the midst of making vital decisions about the nation’s economy.
