Professor Michael Greenberger

wowowow.com - Brooksley Born, chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in the late 90s, pushed for regulation of certain financial derivative instruments during her tenure, but her efforts were reportedly blocked by former Fed chair Alan Greenspan and other Hill economic bigwigs. Today, those derivatives are at the heart of the financial crisis, playing a major role in the collapse of Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and AIG. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director at the CFTC under Born, also advocated for derivatives regulation. "Brooksley was this woman who was not playing tennis with these guys and not having lunch with these guys. There was a little bit of the feeling that this woman was not of Wall Street."
