Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke declined
to comment Wednesday on speculation that he would leave the
US central bank when his term ends early next year.
"I don't have anything for you on my personal plans," he told a press conference.
US President Barack Obama hinted in a television interview Monday that Bernanke might go, noting he had "already stayed a lot longer than he wanted or he was supposed to."
