Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke is scheduled to speak to the Economic Club of Minnesota in September. Bernanke, who is overseeing the central bank of the U.S, will have plenty to talk about. He's trying to manage the nation's monetary policy during a struggling economy and as President Obama and Congress continue to debate the best way to raise the nation's debt ceiling.
The event will be open to Economic Club of Minnesota members and sponsors. The Economic Club of Minnesota's mission is to consider ideas on how "Minnesota can better compete in the global economy and how America can most effectively provide world leadership on economic and strategic issues."
The feature examines statements made by Minnesota politicians and checks them for accuracy. Based on data analysis, document reviews and interviews with non-partisan analysts, statements are rated true, misleading, false or inconclusive.
