Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke's Press Conference

In case you missed this with the Birth Certificate release, the budget issues in Congress, the Royal Wedding media blitz, further revelations regarding an investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and other assorted news, Ben Bernanke, who is the Chairman of the Federal Reserve (they handle the flow of currency and interest rates, among other things) gave a unique press conference this past week. The reason why it is notable is due to the transparency and the explanations to the public, not to Congress, as to what decisions were made and why.
