  1. “Creating a permanent TARP” James Gattuso Washington Times March 25, 2010

  2. Creating a permanent TARP Stated Goal of Dodd-Frank: End Bailouts “Supporters argue that the plan (Dodd Frank) would end “too big to fail”) and prevent future taxpayer bailouts of financial institutions. “ Problem With Legislation: Institutionalizes Bailouts “Those are fine goals, but there’s one problem: The plan would do nothing to achieve them. In fact, it would extend ‘too big to fail’ while in effect creating a permanent bailout program.”

  3. Creating a permanent TARP Features of the legislation The bill would create: 1. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau 2. Financial Stability Oversight Council

  4. Creating a permanent TARP Financial Stability Oversight Council “The idea is to stop firms from presenting a danger to the system as a whole. But no one really knows how to identify systemic risks in advance.” Guaranteed government protection Identifying troubled firms would effectively tell investors that the government will ensure they will not fail. $50 billion fund “$50 billion fund to be used to help finance these forced liquidations to soften the blow for some creditors. Supporters say this funding would be used only in the rarest of cases. Nonsense. If governments have access to money, they tend to use it.”

  5. Creating a permanent TARP A better Way to manage Financial Crisis: Allow for Failures “The focus should be on establishing an effective bankruptcy system for large financial firms to allow failures to be addressed in the same way failure is addressed in other industries.”
