Geoffrey A. Manne, My interview with Bill Isaac, Truth on the Market (April 08, 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.
