It has become an American custom, like fireworks in July. Today Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke gives his latest economic report to Congress. His testimony comes on the same day that Japan’s central bank is indicating its intention to continue stimulus measures.

David Kelly, chief global strategist at JP Morgan funds, joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio with the details.
