Interview with Bill Isaac (Former FDIC Chair)

No Comment

Just before winter break, Rwick Sarkar (V form) and I interviewed an SM parent and trustee Bill Isaac. Mr. Isaac is the former chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, a government organization which provides deposit insurance to depositors in US banks, and today he is a Senior Managing Director at FTI Consulting in Sarasota, Florida. He served as the chair of the FDIC during the 1980s, a recessive time period for the United States economy, in which he had to manage about 3,000 bank failures. We discussed his background overview at 0:45, his economic philosophy at 9:09, tax legislation at 11:31, banking regulations at 16:18, current day polarization in America at 21:27, and advice for high schoolers like us at 28:05. Enjoy the interview!
