Bower gives no output

Do you use OS X? Is this you?

$ bower -v
$ bower help
$ bower install

Does bower silently ignore all your commands for no apparent reason? Try this:

$ sudo bower -v

Chances are that when you installed bower, you ran sudo npm install -g bower. Permissions issues ahoy! Uninstall it, then run the command again without sudo.
