Industry luminary Robert Pozen offers his insights on the future of U.S. finance

The recent credit crisis and the resulting bailout program are unprecedented events in the financial industry. While it′s important to understand what got us here, it′s even more important to consider how we should get out. While there is little question that immediate action was required to stabilize the situation, it is now time to look for a long-term plan to reform the United States financial industry.

That is where Bob Pozen comes in. Perhaps more than anyone in the industry, Pozen commands the respect and attention of the public and private sector. In this timely guide, he outlines his vision for the new financial future and provides actionable advice along the way. To Pozen, there are four high-priority problems that must be addressed, and this book puts them in perspective

Analyzes alternative models for government stakes in banks Recommends a new board structure for large financial institutions Examines the importance of broader Fed jurisdiction over systemic risks Proposes a way to revive the securitization of loans

With Too Big to Save , you′ll learn the likely future of the finance industry and understand why changes have to be made.

This is the best book on the financial crisis that I have seen so far––and I have read a few. It is very clear, with sufficient detail so that most readers with any competence in economic and business matters can understand the individual facets of the issues that he covers. For each facet, he makes recommendations for what can be done to prevent recurrences of such a crisis in the future, something that few of the many observers of the crisis have been able to do convincingly.
