09/17/09 Our financial regulatory system

9/16/2009

Dear Friends,

Earlier this week, President Obama invited me to attend his speech on Wall Street. He spoke directly to industry leaders on the urgency of re-crafting our financial regulatory system. He pointedly reminded the gathered executives that many of their institutions survived, and are now on the road to recovery, thanks to resources provided by the American taxpayer. I think it's fair to say that no one, inside the industry or out, ever wants to see that happen again. Hence the need for a smarter, more competent regulation. Developing that regulation is no easy task. The financial world is radically more complicated and global than it was in the 1930s, when the U.S. government last rethought regulation after an economic calamity. For better or for worse (!), as one of the few Financial Services Committee members with substantial experience in finance, I find myself deep in the mix on these issues.

AF1After the speech, I was invited to join the President on Air Force One for the return journey to Washington. I met with the President and with Chairman Barney Frank. I'm encouraged by the practical and thoughtful approach that the President and the leadership are taking on financial regulatory reform. Action has not been as fast as some would like, but we're talking about incredibly complicated stuff, and I think it's prudent to take the time to get it right.

I hope you'll feel free to contact me with your thoughts.

Best,

Jim

Author Event & Book Signing
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 10:00 AM
PETER SAVERINE & BOBBI EGGERS
JENNY'S PENNIES
Jennies Pennies
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome local Greenwich residents Peter Saverine and Bobbi Eggers as they introduce their new children's book Jenny's Pennies ($17.95).

It is often said that everybody has a book in them to write and Peter Saverine is no exception. Jenny's Pennies was originally meant to chronicle some of the special times when he and his family would find lucky pennies just when they needed them the most. For years they would call these "Jenny's pennies"-a tribute to Peter's mother, Jenny, who passed away in 1998 and who always believed that an errant penny was meant to be picked up and that it would bring good luck. For no apparent reason, Jenny's pennies would be found on the first day of school, in a new college dorm, on the football field before a game, or on a sunny beach. Saverine wanted a whimsical, freestyle artistic expression for the book and knew of Bobbi Eggers' work through previous business ventures. Bobbi Eggers, who is also a Greenwich resident, is a talented artist whose creative editorial cartoons (with stand-up comedian Jane Condon) are often seen in local newspapers and magazines.

WILLIAM F. BAKER, PH.D.
LEADING WITH KINDNESS: HOW GOOD PEOPLE CONSISTENTLY GET SUPERIOR RESULTS
A Short History of Women
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome Greenwich and New York City resident and author William F. Baker, Ph.D., as he visits Just Books to sign copies of his newest book Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results (Amacom; $24.95). Bill Baker experienced leading with kindness firsthand during his 20 years at the helm of Educational Broadcasting Corp., parent company of WNET-TV (Channel Thirteen) and WLIW-TV (Channel 21). It inspired him to affirm and refine his notion of what honorable bosses can accomplish. With his friend Michael O'Malley, Ph.D., Baker did extensive research and interviewed dozens of leaders in diverse organizations. They share their insights into strong, effective leadership in Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results. Today, many leaders have realized that when it comes to business, nice guys often finish first. Old-fashioned images of corporate callousness and greed have been replaced by a gentler, more human conception of great leadership. But how does one define "kindness" in the context of business? And what is the best way to "use" this deceptively complex notion as a guiding principle to lead an organization successfully into the future?
