The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission is the bipartisan panel of 10 prominent citizens that was established by law in 2009. Its mandate and mission is to "examine the causes, domestic and global, of the current financial and economic crisis in the United States." You may be aware of the testimony of Citigroup, Inc., executives at Commission hearings earlier this week. Before the Commission's final report is due on December 15, 2010, many more hearings, reports, and other documents will comprise their work. These will be available on the Commission's web site, a good place to begin for background reports, statistical data, and news articles for courses and papers in corporate, banking, securities, financial services, consumer, and related fields.
