My interview with Bill Isaac

Geoffrey Manne —  8 April 2009

Over at finreg21–a new site devoted to news, analysis and commentary on financial regulatory reform with which I am affiliated–I interview Bill Isaac, former Chairman of the FDIC (during the savings and loan crisis).  We talk about his views on mark to market accounting and his testimony before congress (and a smidge about his views on a systemic risk regulator).  Arnold Kling has a pointedly-titled post on Bill’s views here.  The interview is quite interesting, and Bill has strongly-held and strongly-argued views (with which I don’t entirely agree).  Check it, and the rest of the site, out.
