    An excellent interview. Bair is the kind of person needed in government and it’s good to have her Systemic Risk Council on patrol. It’s easy to see how frustrations like those she had as head of FDIC could drive conscientious people want out of government…leaving self-interest to run the show.

    Rolfe Winkler is so well informed that his interviews are always probing and worth watching. Thanks for flagging this one. For some reason it would not appear with Firefox so I had to resort to IE.

    I watched it in Firefox with no problems!

    Timmy turbo is a confirmed friend of the Banksters from very beginning while at NY-Fed! He is personification what’s wrong with regulation and a prime example of captive regulator with absolutely no concern to Taxpayers!

    Timmy, Larry summers, Hank P, Robt Rubin all belong to the gallery rogues who made this’ crisis’ a sweet deal for those who caused it. To this day there is NO accountability and NO Congressional investigation on this heist -open day robbery!
