What's in His Wallet
During an interview with TIME, Bernanke details the contents of his billfold: "I've got a D.C. driver's license, my American Express card, a debit card, a Jos. [A.] Bank card where I get my suits, I have a health insurance card. And then I have a variety of other cards, phone numbers, United Airlines, frequent flyer. And I have $45...$75...$85. I'm all set."
