The dire news of rising home foreclosures and plummeting home values, growing corporate layoffs, falling 401(k) balances, bank failings and trillion dollar rescue plans has led to a increasing lack of confidence in the American economy and financial systems by its citizens. Everyone is asking Will President Obama’s housing plan help keep Americans in their homes? Will it stabilize home prices? And what needs to be done to prevent more U.S. banks from going under?
To offer a forum for these concerns and help provide some answers, CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, presents “Who’s Protecting Our Money? A Town Hall Meeting With FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair,” hosted by CNBC’s Jim Cramer and Erin Burnett on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH AT 10 PM ET.
CNBC’s Jim Cramer and Erin Burnett moderate the discussion before a studio audience in a Q & A format with special guest FDIC Chariman Sheila Bair–the chairman of the organization charged with protecting America’s money. They’ll be taking questions from the audience and viewers are invited to submit question via CNBC.com and Facebook.
