Bernanke: "The Federal Reserve and the Financial Crisis" Part 1

by Calculated Risk on 3/20/2012 05:55:00 PM

Update: Here are the slides. Link to lecture series (next is on Thursday)

This is part 1 of 4 of a lecture series on the Federal Reserve. The first lecture (about 1 hour) discusses monetary policy history, the tools and goals of the reserve - and he spent some time on the gold standard.

There should be slides available soon at the Federal Reserve. Joe Weisenthal at Business Insider has some of the slides (and Bernanke's comments on the gold standard).
