In the midst of a near economic breakdown of the US financial system, George W. Bush signed into law the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 or more commonly referred to as the "Bailout Bill". The purpose of the Bill was to purchase bad assets, reduce uncertainty regarding the worth of the remaining assets, and restore confidence in the credit markets. The details of the implementation of this bill are uncertain. What assets will the government buy? What are the criteria? What are the deadlines? As issues surrounding this bill continue to escalate, companies and organization leaders should familiarize themselves with the newest developments of the Bill and understand how it will affect them.

The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to discuss what this bill means to your financial institution and how to best position yourself. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour Live Webinar.
