Today's Conference Call: What Will Obama Do Now?

Today's Conference Call: What Will Obama Do Now? - Obamabanner

 

"We need to convince those seeking or trying to retain power that they will not get our votes unless and until they commit to meaningful change of [our] financial system."
                  -Neil Barofsky 

 

 

We will be hosting an Expert Conference Call with Neil Barofsky, the former Inspector General of the Troubled Asset Relief Fund (TARP). The call will be held today, November 7th at 11:00am EST, following the Obama victory to determine the future path of fiscal, monetary and economic policy. By his own admission, Barofsky is a life-long Democrat and as a former senior official in the Treasury Department will have some keen insight into the future of policy in the Obama administration. 

 

Barofsky is extremely familiar with the inner workings of Washington; in late 2008 he was appointed to oversee the Treasury Department's administration of the $700 billion Wall Street/TARP bailout where he remained until his resignation in February 2012. He has become known for his relentless criticism of Treasury officials, often highlighting Tim Geithner as a particular problem. Barofsky officiated as an aggressive and outspoken overseer monitoring for waste and fraud. During his time as with the U.S. Treasury more than $550 million in fraud losses were avoided and $150 million fraudulent earnings were recovered for taxpayers. Given his experience and knowledge of the treasury it will be invaluable to hear his brutally honest thoughts on the outcome of the election and his insider's perspective on how it will economically effect our country moving forward.
