“Financial Regulatory Reform”
June 25, 2009
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Can Government Regulation and Federal Control of Key Industries and Companies Turn the Economy Around? On this week's show, we analyze some of the key governmental and business challenges stemming from the recession-induced changes to the nation's financial environment. We start with Travis Seegmiller and Todd Cranford, public policy experts in the world of financial services, as they discuss the state of play for President Obama's ambitious plans to reform the financial marketplace. What are the key issues, who are the key players in Congress, when will the bill become law? Then, one of the most controversial government actions in recent memory was the federal bailout and takeover of General Motors. Our guest is Michael Richman, one of the nation's leading bankruptcy attorneys, and the lawyer of record for dissident General Motors bondholders who aren't convinced the government's recovery plan can save the company.
