I know what you are all thinking; who will Kudlow recommend as Yellen’s replacement? It just so happens that Kudlow mentioned 5 names a few years back:These aren't anti-Fed people, I would classify them as advocates of slow money pumping rather than no money manipulation.
Kevin Warsh, John Taylor, Steve Forbes, Paul Ryan and Richard Fisher.
I’d guess that Warsh and Taylor are the more likely choices.
BTW, Kudlow's list actually contained 6 names. The sixth being Summers himself but he has taken himself off the list and explained why:
