The Financial Crisis

James Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

"The Federal Reserve and other agencies have taken many steps to contain the ongoing financial crisis and limit its impact on the broader economy. It is critically important that we clearly communicate our actions to better ensure their success."

- James Bullard, 2009
