Charles E. Haldeman talked about the housing market and the state of the economy. Ed Haldeman became the chief executive officer of Freddie Mac after it was placed in conservatorship by the government. He talked about the history, current state, and future of the mortgage market in America and gave an inside look at running a very large public, financial institution. Topics included the role of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae in the 2008 financial crisis, the failure of the government to decide upon a future course for these government sponsored enterprises (GSEs), and what a future administration might do. Mr. Haldeman used some slides during his presentation and responded to questions from members of the audience.
The 2012 Annual Robert Glauber Lecture, “Freddie and Fannie: Where They’ve Been, What to Do with Them,” was a John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Harvard Institute of Politics. It was cosponsored by the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government. close
