              Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Bair, Sheila

              The former FDIC chairwoman, and one of the first people to acknowledge the full risk of subprime loans, offers a unique perspective on the financial crisis.Appointed by George W. Bush as the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2006, Sheila Blair witnes...sed the origins of the financial crisis and in 2008 became one of the key people trying to repair the damage to our economy. Bull by the Horns is her remarkable and refreshingly honest account of that contentious time and the ensuing struggle for reform that continues to this day. A levelheaded, pragmatic figure with a clear focus on serving the public good, Bair was often one of the few women in the room during heated discussions about the economy. Her narrative of Citibank's attempted takeover of Wachovia is a stinging indictment of how regulators and the banks worked against the public interest at times to serve their own needs. As Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist Steven Pearlstein said, Bair is everything you'd want in a public servant: thoughtful, practical, independent-minded--a straight shooter with political savvy who can manage the details of policy without losing sight of the big picture.... She never forgets that her most important constituency isn't the thousands of banks she regulates but the millions of Americans who use them. Bair is steadfast in her belief that the American public needs to understand the crisis to bring it to an end. In Bull by the Horns, she clears away the myths and reveals a critical plan for getting our financial and regulatory systems back on track.

              Can knowing how a financial crisis happened keep it from happening again? Sheila Bair, the former chairman of the FDIC, explains how the Great Recession impacted families on a personal level in this easy-to-understand book that puts a human face on the economic crisis ( School Li...brary Journal ). In 2008, America went through a terrible financial crisis, and we are still suffering the consequences. Families lost their homes and struggled to pay for food and medicine. Businesses didn't have money to buy equipment or hire and pay workers. Millions of people lost their jobs and their life savings. More than 100,000 businesses went bankrupt. As the former head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Sheila Bair worked to protect families during the crisis and keep their bank deposits safe. In The Bullies of Wall Street, she describes the many ways in which a broken system led families into financial trouble, and also explains the decisions being made at the time by the most powerful people in the country--from CEOs of multinational banks, to heads of government regulatory committees--that led to the recession.
