In Radio Interview, Partner Neil Barofsky Discusses “Visceral Outrage” at Bailout Inequities

Speaking to KNX “In Depth,” Mr. Barofsky said that mistakes in how the coronavirus bailout packages are designed -- with relief tailored to the “big players” and not to small companies -- are happening “over and over again.”  “We’re seeing the same visceral outrage over this program that we saw the last time around, whether it was Occupy Wall Street on the left or the Tea Party on the right,” he said. He added: “This anger is bubbling up right now that hasn’t had a chance to express itself, but if we keep going down this same road with these programs, and the inequity that comes out of them, the way they’re designed  – look out.”
