Final Report of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission

Published by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report investigates the causes of the financial and economic crisis of 2007-2010.

On May 20, 2009, President Obama signed into law an Act that established the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission to "examine the causes, domestic and global, of the current financial and economic crisis in the United States." During the course of its investigation, the ten person bipartisan committee reviewed millions of pages of documents, interviewed more than 700 witnesses, and held 19 days of public hearings in New York, Washington, D.C., and communities across the country that were hit hard by the crisis.

The final report presents the Commission's findings and conclusions and also contains 126 pages of dissenting views. The Commission terminates sixty days following the release of its final report.

The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report (662 pages) will be disseminated to Federal depository libraries as follows:

* Title: The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report: Final Report of the National Commission on the Causes of the Financial and
Economic Crisis in the United States. Official Government Edition, January 2011.
