Bernanke says ‘we need to make sure that the recovery continues,’ plans to further tamper with economy
Editor’s Note: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says the economic recovery “is close to faltering” and the central bank is prepared to take further steps to support it. The economy is growing more slowly than the Federal Reserve had expected, Bernanke said Tuesday before the congressional Joint Economic Committee. He said the biggest factor depressing consumer confidence is poor job growth.
