Yellen on the Hill: As Economy Sags Fed Head Pledges Continued Easy Money


She's back! Yellen testifies before the Senate (CNN Money)

The head of the Federal Reserve is testifying before the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday. Originally scheduled for two weeks ago, the hearing was postponed due to a snow storm in Washington.

Yellen's prepared remarks are expected to be identical to those she delivered two weeks ago before the House Financial Services Committee, but the Q&A session is where things could get interesting.
