"Trump's Newest Fed Nominee Faces GOP Opposition" by Binyamin Appelbaum


Ian Katz was quoted in Binyamin Appelbaum's New York Times article, "Trump's Newest Fed Nominee Faces GOP Opposition," published on October 23, 2018. 

The article reads:

The Fed's vice chairman for supervision, Randal K. Quarles, would remain the lead official on regulatory issues. But Ian Katz, a financial policy analyst at Capital Alpha Partners, a research firm for investors, said Ms. Liang, by virtue of her experience, would almost certainly play an influential role.

“She’s made her career on financial stability issues, and I would fully expect her to be an influential voice,” he said. “And if you’d like to see less regulation and looser oversight, then this isn’t who you’d pick. You may think she would be too quick to put the brakes on or to rein in certain activities.”
