Washington, DC, DC, March 20, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- GoldenNetworking.com's Banking Leaders Forum 2010, “Discerning the New Industry Landscape (If Possible)”, March 25th, with Keynote Speaker Honorable Eugene A. Ludwig, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Promontory Financial Group, LLC, and former U.S. Comptroller of the Currency, will provide the most up-to-date overview of the new regulatory and economic landscape for the financial services industry. A topic of importance will be the questions raised by Sheila Bair, chairwoman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., on Senator Christopher Dodd's recent bill including government assistance to individual institutions, and his amendment to address those concerns.
The Huffington Post reported, "On Friday morning, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chairman Sheila Bair, who has emerged as a darling of progressives and those wishing to level the playing field between Wall Street megabanks and Main Street community banks, said in a speech in Orlando that she had 'serious concerns' about Dodd's bill. The Fed used its authority under Section 13 of the Federal Reserve Act to bail out AIG -- a bailout that eventually reached more than $180 billion and included tens of billions funneled to firms like Goldman who were AIG's counterparties on sophisticated derivatives contracts. 'We will work closely with the Senate to make sure there are no loopholes around the carefully crafted resolution procedures,' Bair said in her prepared remarks. 'If the Congress accomplishes anything this year, it should be to clearly and completely end too big to fail. Never again should taxpayers be asked to bailout a failing financial firm. It's time that the big players understand that they sink or swim on their own.'"
