Helicopter Ben is a coined name for Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. The origin of this "nickname" stems from statements made by the Chairman in regards to a hypothetical monetary crisis. He basically indicated that if there were a liquidity squeeze, he would direct helicopters to be flown around the country spewing out fistfuls of cash to the populous.
