Firefighting — Bernanke, Geithner and Paulson reflect on the financial crisis

Top policymakers look back on lessons learnt and mistakes made during 2008 meltdown.

Martin Sandbu FT 9 July 2019


Stanley Fischer said there was “no legal basis” for what the Fed did on multiple fronts after the collapse of Lehman Brothers. 

The Dodd-Frank Act passed by Congress - when anti-banker sentiment was at its peak - prevents the Fed from acting freely as a lender of last resort... 

The authorities may not rescue individual companies, or lend to non-banks, or offer blanket guarantees of bank debt and money market funds. 

The lightning-fast action and $1.5 trillion of emergency loans that restored control in 2008 is no longer possible.
