Outgoing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke speaks about the Federal Reserve's first and next century, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, at the Brookings Institution in Washington. In his final public appearance as chairman of the Federal Reserve, Bernanke took a moment to reflect on the 2008 financial crisis and compared it to a very bad car crash. During an interview at the Brookings Institute, he recalls some "very intense periods" during the crisis, similar to trying to keep a car from going over a bridge after a collision. But after some time, he looked back and said, "Oh my God." (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
