COP on the job: TARP Transactions

If you've been hanging around the cable news shows, you've heard Elizabeth Warren on her COP job: oversight of the TARP dollars, which essentially means oversight of Treasury. About a month ago, she spoke to Congress as well as many interviewers about the value of the Treasury Department's acquisitions using federal money.

In a short 6-minute-19-second video, she captures the main points (rather, questions) that the Congressional Oversight Panel has about those acquisitions. Even though the video is focused on questions, not answers, I recommend it. Warren is a professor accustomed to teaching; the message is clear and understandable. Her hand gestures in the above screen capture happen to be part of the message: price Treasury paid for assets versus value of said assets.
