1. Which FCIC View best represents the causes of the Financial Crisis?
None of the three views. However, Wallison's was the most eloquently written piece. The other pieces were scattered all over the place.
2. Which narrative presented by Douglas Elliott and Martin Baily of the Brookings Institute in Telling the Narrative of the Financial Crisis: Not Just a Housing Bubble best represents the causes of the Financial Crisis?
“Everyone” was at fault: Wall Street, the government, and our wider society
3. I believe the crisis is ongoing and I project the Global Financial Crisis will end in the year2013 or beyond. It really depends on what you classify as related to just the financial crisis. The worst of it was over in 2009. After that, it is hard to decipher what was due to the crisis, what was due to policy action, and what was due to a realignment to a normal state of growth. Bubbles are particularly bad, because they misalign resources which are then difficult to adjust post bubble. This adjustment has continued into 2013.
