This bipartisan Commission was given the mission in May 2009, to examine the causes of the U.S. financial crisis and to report its findings to the Congress, the President, and the American people. Its final report includes the results of the Commission’s inquiry and the Commission’s conclusions as to the causes of the financial crisis based on this inquiry.


40,000 pages of letters, e-mails, court fillings, reports and other documents. The Commission used the authority it was given to issue subpoenas to compel testimony and the production of documents. These documents were part of its inquiry into institutions that included American International Group (AIG), Bear Stearns, Citigroup, Countrywide Financial, Fannie Mae, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Moody’s, Wachovia, and other firms.

The Commission studied policies put in place by successive Congresses and administrations. The Commission examined the roles of policy makers and regulators at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (and its successor, the Federal Housing Finance Agency), the Office of Thrift Supervision, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Treasury Department.
