Brooksley Born - Prophet and Loss, an article in STANFORD Magazine, March/April 2009.
An article on his nibs' cousin is the cover feature in the current STANFORD Magazine. Interesting writeup of the happenings at the CFTC in the late nineties.
If they'd listened to Born and implemented her proposals, could it have prevented the meltdown?
Update: She's also getting one of the Kennedy Library Foundation's 2009 Profile in Courage Awards for the days back then.
