On the Trail of the TARP

Elizabeth Warren, an expert on personal finance and credit cards, oversees the bailout

Thursday, May 07, 2009

That's essentially the charge of our guest, Elizabeth Warren. Warren, the Gottlieb Professor of Law at Harvard University, is the Chairwoman of the Congressional Oversight Panel, which watches where the TARP money goes. When President Obama talks about transparency, she's the one who helps make it happen. She joins The Takeaway in advance of a new TARP report due out today.
