President Trumps nominee for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board is not an economist, but he has continually gotten key economic policy ideas wrong for 30 years and admits he knows nothing about monetary policy, which is what the Fed oversees and regulates.

Im kind of new to this game, frankly, so Im going to be on a steep learning curve myself about how the Fed operates, how the Federal Reserve makes its decisions, Moore told Bloomberg Television. Its hard for me to say even what my role will be there, assuming I get confirmed.
