Chair Speech
Released On 11/13/2013 7:00:00 PM For 11/13/2013 7:00:00 PM

Description
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke town hall meeting with educators in Washington.

Highlights
Chairman Bernanke appears to be working on a graceful exit when his term as Fed chief ends January 31, 2014. He made no specific comments on pending monetary policy decisions, the evening ahead of a Senate confirmation hearing for Janet Yellen as the nominated successor to lead the Fed. His general comments included that QE3 helped the recovery, confidence in the Fed doing its job is keeping inflation low, and that the labor market remains weak.
