Inside Politics: Bernanke says tough times still felt by many
Question of the Day
Mr. Bernanke said that while measures of consumer spending, income and wealth point to improvement, “many individuals and households continue to struggle with difficult economic and financial conditions.”
His comments were made during a prerecorded speech on economic measurement to the International Association for Research in Income and Wealth in Cambridge, Mass.
Mr. Bernanke said statistics can sometimes hide important information. He said there have been interesting developments in the study of “well-being” and cited the kingdom of Bhutan, which abandoned tracking gross national product in 1972 in favor of a measure of happiness.
Mr. Bernanke made no comments about Fed policy or the July jobs report released last Friday.
Top Republicans have called Mr. Reid a liar.
Mrs. Pelosi, who was in Florida Monday, said that although the allegation is unproven, she didn’t think Mr. Reid was wrong to publicize it. Mr. Reid has said only that the tip came from a former Romney associate.
So far, Mr. Romney has released only his 2010 tax return.
