Kathleen Day, a Johns Hopkins Carey Business School finance expert who often interviewed Paul Volcker in her work as a journalist and author, is available to speak with media members about the late chairman of the Federal Reserve and his impact on the American economic system.
Day, a former business reporter for The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, is a lecturer on the full-time faculty of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. Her expertise is in financial crises and how they spread.
Her first book, “S&L Hell: The People and Politics Behind the $1 Trillion Savings-and-Loan Crisis,” was published by W.W. Norton in 1993. In early 2019, Yale University Press published her second book, “Broken Bargain: Banks, Bailouts, and the Struggle to Tame Wall Street.”
She previously taught at Georgetown University's graduate program in real estate, where she created an ethics course based on the series of financial crises in the United States over the past several decades, from the S&L debacle and through the Great Recession. In addition to financial crises, her interests include the related topics of corporate governance, government regulation, lobbying and campaign finance, ethics and crisis communication.
