– While executives from the Big Three automakers return to Congress looking for a bailout of their own this week, government auditors are reporting that the original bailout of the financial services industry lacks oversight and control. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said, "The money’s gone into the banks, but [the government doesn’t] know if it’s been used for lending, for dividends, for buying new companies, there’s no way to trace whether the money has been spent for the purpose Congress wanted it spent on."

- The Troubled Asset Rescue Program was originally supposed to purchase toxic securities from banks, but now the federal government is using that money to take equity stakes in large financial institutions. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said, "[The Treasury and the Fed are] an old boys network [that is] unable to analyze the problem in any other way than to benefit institutions. There's a total refusal to understand that the problem is the depression in housing prices itself ... and if you can't fix the underlying problem, it's like pouring water down a hole."

- President-elect Barack Obama's transition team has selected Eric Holder, a senior official in the Justice Department during the Clinton administration, as its nominee for attorney general. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former Justice Department official, said, "Holder is a tough prosecutor who is well-grounded in civil liberties protection. I haven't met anyone who has that balance so well in his head."
