"At the next banking crisis, Citi likely will be there, once again. Borrowed Time explains why."--Bartly Dzivi, Special Counsel, Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission
"This book convincingly shows--through fascinating investigative reporting of 200 years of history--how connections between government and Citi grew closer over time and became the ultimate cause of bailouts, detested by so many Americans, and even of the market conditions that led to the financial crisis."--John Taylor, Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics, Stanford University
About the Author

Vern McKinley's clients include the U.S. Treasury, International Monetary Fund, and KfW (German Development Bank). He has advised governments in over 30 countries, many of which were experiencing financial crises at the time. Prior to his consulting career he worked for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Resolution Trust Corporation and the Department of the Treasury's Office of Thrift Supervision. His career started with the FDIC in the midst of the banking crisis in Texas during the 1980s. McKinley is credited with correctly predicting in 1997 that the structure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would one day lead to the meltdown of the two institutions. All opinions are his own.
