Citi's Creator, Alone With His Regrets [NYTimes]

Sunday, January 3, 2010 - 2:06 PM
New York Times interview of the former CEO and Chairman of Citigroup. The reporter notices a very interesting memento in his office:
On another wall hangs a hunk of wood - at least 4 feet wide - etched with his portrait and the words "The Shatterer of Glass-Steagall." The memento is a reference to the repeal in 1999 of Depression-era legislation; the repeal overturned core financial regulations, allowed for the creation of Citi and helped feed the Wall Street boom.
