Ben Bernanke has stated that economic condition is far from ideal, and “in case of necessity” additional support will be provided. He has also reminded of the previously taken measures on 3 percent support of US economy and 2 million rise of the number of jobs. Bernanke has accused Europe of the existing problems, having admitted that internal hardships also have a negative role.
