SPEECH - In the speech 'Balance Sheets and the Recovery' Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve assessed whether there exist financial constraints that might impede the developing recovery in the U.S. economy. His sense, he said, is that the household and banking sectors are in good financial shape for this stage in the business cycle; and that, though financial problems exist, they should not in themselves restrain the building economic recovery.
