Print comment Post Comments
"With Congress getting close to finalizing an overhaul of the nation's financial-regulatory system, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke weighed in against provisions in the proposed legislation that would subject the central bank to more political scrutiny," the Wall Street Journal reports. "In a speech at the Bank of Japan on Wednesday, the Fed chief argued before an international audience that central banks independent from politics were better at managing the economy. He also detailed the steps the Fed had taken to become more transparent and accountable to the public, two conditions he said were needed in return for greater independence."
