The federal government's emergency package to stem the tide of financial devastation wrought by the collapse of the mortgage-related assets market is one of the most hotly debated pieces of legislation in memory. The size and scope of what the Treasury Department proposed, together with what Congress was willing to settle for, have obscured the issues for many attorneys and their clients who have a high stake in the matter. There are a number of questions that need to be asked about this proposal:

• What would the Treasury own if it bought mortgage-backed securities?
• How will the oversight mechanism of Treasury's investments operate?
• What are the benefits of the proposal? The risks?
• What will determine the success or failure of this plan?
• How will the taxpayers be compensated for their investment?

This webcast features experts who will answer these questions. Among our panelists are the Hon. Chris Bell, a former member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee; Michah Green, Public Policy Partner for Patton Boggs and former President and CEO of the Bond Market Association; Kevin Wodicka, Director of Investment Management, LNR Property Corp.; and Talcott Franklin and Thomas Nealon, co-authors of Mortgage and Asset Backed Securities Litigation Handbook (West Legalworks 2008), who predicted the mortgage-related asset crisis in May 2006.
