CONFERENCE CALL DIAL-IN: WHAT WILL OBAMA DO NOW?

Hedgeye's Macro Team is hosting a call today with Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the Troubled Asset Relief Fund (TARP).  Details for the call, including the dial-in information, are below.

 

"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, to discuss the future path of fiscal, monetary and economic policy under the Obama administration. 

 

Barofsky is intimately 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 March 2011. He has become known for his relentless criticism of Treasury officials, including current Secretary of the Treasury, Tim Geithner.  Barofsky has officiated as an aggressive and outspoken overseer monitoring for waste and fraud at the federal level. During his time at the U.S. Treasury, more than $550 million in fraud losses were avoided and $150 million in fraudulent earnings were recovered for taxpayers. Given his extensive experience, we see Barofsky as being well-suited to offer a salient analysis of the policy implications of yesterday's election. 

 

Please dial in 5-10 minutes prior to the 11:00am EST start time using the number provided below.
