  2. Fresh Air: Elizabeth Warren | 9 March 2009

    Foreclosures Threaten Economy

    According to a report issued Mar. 6, 2009 by the Congressional Oversight Panel charged with monitoring the use of bailout funds, the rate of home foreclosure is now three times its historic rate — "so large that it threatens the entire economy."

    Panel chairwoman Elizabeth Warren joins Fresh Air to discuss the foreclosure problem — and what can be done about it.

    The Congressional Oversight Panel was created in October 2008 to oversee the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Warren was appointed chairwoman in the panel’s first meeting. In December 2008, Warren criticized the bailout program for lacking a clear direction or approach.
