Ask a Banker
Do you have a burning question you’ve been dying to ask those bailed-out bankers? Now’s your chance!
FCIC (Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission) Commissioner Bill Thomas has asked the public to contribute any and all questions you might have about the financial crisis. He says that the bankers will have to answer all questions posed to them, and that the public deserves to have the answers.
So far, the questions submitted have run the gamut from “Why aren’t the banks modifying more loans?” to “How much has your corporation spent on lobbying each year for the last ten years?” and “Why can’t the banks be split up into smaller entities so they are no longe rtoo big to fail?” You can read the full list of current questions here, and submit your own query to be answered by the bankers. When we get some answers, we’ll post the results here.
What questions do you wish the leaders of the big banks were forced to answer? Now’s your chance to ask away!
