Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will give a speech on the economy at Morehouse College today.
Bernanke is apparently bored with straight speech-giving. Based on the transcript published on the Wall Street Journal's web site, he's plans on spicing-up today's Morehouse address by delivering it in the form of ma nishtana, the four questions traditionally asked by the youngest child at a Passover seder.

In his conclusion, Bernanke tries to go upbeat. He will declare he is "fundamentally optimistic" about the U.S. economy and note "[r]ecently we have seen tentative signs that the sharp decline in economic activity may be slowing."
