The damage that Bernanke has inflicted upon the United States won't be seen until a few years down the road. Similar to Greenspan, who was treated as a god when he retired, only to be seen as a corrupt and incompetent goat now.
Volcker did what had to be done when it had to be done, and it was hard (but necessary). Bernanke on the other hand did what was easy. And you'll see down the line what that causes.
