“Bailout” Podcasts

by on September 24, 2008 · 12 comments

My employer, The Cato Institute, has put together a couple of podcasts that make for interesting listening as we try to understand what has happened in mortgage finance and financial services – and what is to come.

Cato Chairman Bill Niskanen speaks to us in “The $700-Billion Bailout.” And Cato’s Vice President for Academic Affairs Jim Dorn tells us about “Socialized Risks, Private Reward.”

Dorn puts together Cato’s annual Monetary Conference, which draws some of the most knowledgeable analysts in the country and world. It happens November 19th this year. I’m guessing it will be well attended.

    Good podcasts. I liked the analysis. In most respects they was appropriately neutral. Though the speakers acknowledge corporate greed, there were a couple stabs at offloading the blame on the whipping boy of regulation. Regulation may have facilitated this financial meltdown, but it took the leadership and innovation of the corporate executives to create these financial instruments, to market them, and to conveniently overlook risk management. I'll stop here.
