Massachusetts representative Barney Frank will be giving a talk at Harvard next Monday, April 6th, entitled Appropriate Regulation and Economic Reconstruction:

In searching for details on the talk, I came across a reference to a similar talk which Mr. Frank had been scheduled to give back in January 2008:

The previous talk was ironically entitled We Told You So in which he argued that lack of government control was responsible for the trouble in the housing market. The great irony was that Frank's self proclaimed "dice rolling" with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that portion of the market which was controlled by the government, was soon to lead to its own massive failure. This despite many others having "told him so" and Frank denying to the very end that the GSEs' practices were unsound and even mocking constituents who posited correctly that they would need to be bailed out in short order.
