The hardest-working woman in monetary policy

Using the Fed Chair’s official calendar, The Wall Street Journal tallied up exactly how much time Janet Yellen spent in meetings last year and with whom.

It’s kind of daunting.

Starting on the day she was sworn in, February 3, 2014, Yellen had more than 950 meetings–sometimes as many as 11 in a day.

There’s all kinds of fascinating stuff in there. For example, on December 2 last year she met with Jamie Dimon, the CEO of the biggest bank in the country, JP Morgan Chase, from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM in the afternoon.

Take a look.
