Sheila Bair is widely acknowledged in government circles and the media as one of the first people to identify and accurately assess the subprime crisis. Appointed by George W. Bush as the chairperson of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2006, she witnessed the origins of the financial crisis and, in 2008, became - along with Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner-one of the key players invested in repairing the damage to our economy.
"Interesting but hyperbolic"
"To Boost the Economy, Help Students First" is from the December 21, 2016 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Sheila C. Bair and narrated by Kristi Burns.
