Eisinger teamed with Jake Bernstein on a series of stories about how Wall Street practices worsened the financial crisis. More recently, Eisinger has revealed how the Federal Reserve allowed banks to pay out $33 billion to shareholders despite warnings from the FDIC, and how Freddie Mac placed bets that would pay off if American homeowners failed to refinance while at the same time making it harder for them to do so. He also writes a bi-weekly financial column co-published with New York Times’ DealBook.
Before joining ProPublica, Eisinger covered the financial industry for Condé Nast Portfolio and the Wall Street Journal.
Eisinger won’t be able to answer all questions, but any topics are fair game: Wall Street practices, investigative journalism, or even his beloved Green Bay Packers.
