Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Ben Bernanke before the House Financial Services Committee

Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Ben Bernanke testifies before the House Financial Services Committee on July 24, 2009 that consumer protection is best left with the central bank, rather than the proposed new federal agency. At a town hall meeting in Kansas City, Missouri on July 26, Bernanke defended the Fed's bailouts by claiming they were implemented to avoid a "second Great Depression."
