Paul Solman: My longtime motto: There is no big time. But if there were, this might be your chance to become part of it. You can pose an economic question here — not to me or even one of my lofty academic confederates, but Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Bernanke will be taking questions from the public on how the central bank has responded to the financial crisis and its changing role on the road to economic recovery in an on-the-record forum held in Kansas City, Missouri, on July 26 and aired in segments on the NewsHour the next three nights. A live audience will pose questions, and host Jim Lehrer plans to ask questions we receive right here. Be bold.
