The current economic crisis, brought about by problems stemming from the financial sector, has led to strong congressional and policy responses focused on restoring liquidity and capital to financial institutions, restructuring the market, alleviating the tightening of credit to businesses and consumers, and providing mortgage assistance to borrowers. To help customers remain informed on the responses our government has taken during this unique time of change, Matthew Bender/LexisNexis has published this special pamphlet focusing on the legislative and regulatory responses to the financial crisis.

Topics covered include:
  • background and statutory authority
  • Treasury Department programs
  • Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation initiatives
  • Federal Reserve System approaches
  • Public-Private Investment Program
  • consumer and auto industry programs

    Written by a lawyer with a wealth of experience in financial and regulatory practice, this special pamphlet discusses the nature of the problem and the various statutory and policy approaches that have resulted in programs implemented by the Department of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
