The Gerald Loeb Awards announced tonight that ProPublica’s Jesse Eisinger is this year’s winner for commentary.
Eisinger’s bi-weekly column, The Trade, focused on Wall Street accountability with no-nonsense analysis and lively writing. Across a wide range of financial topics in 2014, Eisinger returned again and again to the failure of lawmakers and regulators to address the weaknesses laid bare by the 2008 global meltdown.
The awards were announced tonight at the Loeb banquet in New York City. Congratulations to all the winners.
