 To finance news now, and the US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says the country's economic recovery is close to faltering1. Appearing before a congressional committee, Mr Bernanke said he could understand frustration2 with the slow recovery.

 
"Very generally, I think people are quite unhappy with the state of the economy and what's happening. They blame, with some justification3, the problems in the financial sector4 for getting us into this mess, and they are dissatisfied with the policy response here in Washington. And at some level, I can't blame them. Certainly, 9% unemployment and very slow growth is not a very good situation. That's what they are protesting."
