WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 02: Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell testifies about 'monetary policy and the state of the economy' before the House Financial Services Committee on March 02, 2022 in Washington, DC. Powell currently holds the title of chair 'pro tempore' because his nomination for a second four-year term was stalled by Senate Republicans protesting President Joe Biden's nomination of Sarah Bloom Raskin to be the central bank's Wall Street regulator.
