Making Sense of the Aggregator Bank

Ausubel Lawrence M and Peter Cramton ()

The Economists' Voice, 2009, vol. 6, issue 3, 1-4

Abstract: On Tuesday, 10 February 2009, Treasury Secretary Geithner proposed the aggregator bank ("public-private investment fund") as a key instrument to resolve the financial crisis. He left out many details, so Lawrence Ausubel and Peter Cramton explain how an aggregator bank might operate in practice, and argue that with proper design, such a bank could be better than TARP.
