Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says the global financial crisis highlights the need for economists to deepen their understanding of how events on Wall Street can affect the broader economy.

In prepared remarks to a Fed conference, Bernanke says: "The rationale for such research has certainly been underscored by the financial crisis that began in August 2007 and the powerful adverse effects of the crisis on economic activity around the globe."

The Fed chief's remarks didn't mention current economic conditions, or offer clues as to whether the central bank would announce any additional steps to shore up the economy at its meeting later this month.
