On Tuesday, US Treasury Secretary Geithner is expected to announce a multi-pronged approach to address the continuing financial crisis. Treasury's revised rescue plan coupled with the Federal Reserve Board's changes to the Term Asset Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF) and the initial report to Congress by the Special Inspector General (SIG) for TARP will directly or indirectly impact various US businesses and industries.
Please join us for a 30-minute teleconference, the next in our continuing series on the financial crisis, in which we will address such questions as:

  • What is Treasury's revised financial rescue plan and how will it impact your business or industry?
  • What new programs can be expected in the coming months to carry out the new plan?
  • What are the significant changes to the TALF program and how might this program change in the future?
  • How might the SIG TARP report and Congressional Oversight Panel change TARP and future rescue programs?
