Our speaker will be Mr. Neil Barofsky, who served as the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Assets Relief Program (“SIGTARP”) during the financial crisis. Currently an adjunct professor at NYU Law School, Mr. Barofsky has been very critical of the administration’s handling of the bailout and overall reform efforts, and his recent book, “Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street
”, has received considerable attention. Noting that “the future of our economy continues to be dictated by seemingly endless dysfunction in Washington,” Mr. Barofsky will discuss what he learned from his time as SIGTARP, including his conclusion that the government mishandled the most recent crisis and that “captured politicians and watered down regulatory reform have helped sow the seeds for the next one.” Mr. Barofsky will offer his views on how we got where we are and what we need to do to keep history from repeating itself.
