Markets: The accidental strategist

UBS interest rates strategist Matthew Johnson is an unabashed fan of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, saying he saved the world from another Great Depression.

If Matthew Johnson ever met Ben Bernanke, he would want to ask the Federal Reserve Chairman where he thought he went wrong during his time as the world’s most influential central banker.

Johnson, the 33-year old patrician-looking UBS interest rates strategist, is, unlike many in financial markets, an unabashed fan of the former Princeton University professor who may yet return to teaching.
