The Michigan Daily - Friday, October 28, 2005 - 7
Continued from page 1
Michigan Difference campaign, designed to increase
charitable donations with the goal of raising $2.5
billion, has already raised more than $1.89 billion.
She hopes for $800 million of that to be funneled
into the endowment.
Last year, $25 million of Business School bene-
factor Stephen Ross's $100-million gift to the Uni-
versity went into the endowment.
The endowment has grown rapidly in recent years.
In 1995, it was worth $1.3 billion. It now ranks 11th
in the country among university endowments.
Still, it pales in comparison with Ivy League
heavyweights such as Harvard University, which
leads the pack with an endowment of about $25.9
billion. Yale University's endowment is $15.2 bil-
lion, a distant second to Harvard's.
Prestigious private universities have traditionally
relied more heavily on their endowments than public
universities, meaning the University of Michigan's
chances of catching up are slim.
"Harvard and Yale just had a hundred years on
us," Slottow said.

operating it won't be any problem even though Ben
hasn't had any experience in financial markets on
Wall Street," Gramlich said. "Even though he
doesn't know everyone on Wall Street, most
of his papers study markets, so he understands
them very well."
Bernanke will take over from Greenspan, who is
legendary in his handling of the nation's fiscal pol-
icy, at the beginning of February. Gramlich said he
doesn't expect major policy shifts when Bernanke
takes over, adding that the biggest challenge Ber-
nanke will face is the nation's large budget deficit.
"I think personally he can handle the problem
as well as anybody else," he said.
Former University Provost Paul Courant, who
now teaches economics and public policy at the
University, also voiced his support for Bernanke.
"He is a very able man and very articulate and
has spent several years on the Federal Reserve,
so only being in academia previously shouldn't
really affect his capability to perform well,"
Courant said almost everyone in the econom-
ics department is pleased with the decision to go
Business School Prof. Claes Fornell said Bernan-
ke's perceived weaknesses are actually strengths.
"The fact of Bernanke only being in academia
is actually a very positive aspect, because it will
be a fresh person without too many political ties in
Washington," he said.
In contrast with President Bush's other major
nomination - that of Harriet Miers, who yester-
day withdrew her bid for the U.S. Supreme Court
after failing to win the support of lawmakers from
both parties - the bulk of the initial reactions to
the appointment of Bernanke both in academia and
politics have been highly optimistic outside of the
University, with both Republicans and Democrats
praising the choice.
"We need a careful, nonideological person
who understands that the Federal Reserve's
main job is to fight inflation, and Ben Bernanke
seems to fit that bill," Sen. Charles Schumer (D-
New York), the highest-ranking Democrat on the
Senate Banking Committee, told The Washing-
ton Post on Monday.
