Interview With Raghuram Rajan of University of Chicago

The Minneapolis Federal Reserve has a terrific publication titled "The Region". It used to be you could get the print version for free through post mail. Not sure now. They have an interview with University of Chicago economist Raghuram Rajan. He is not typical in his ideas and theories as you might expect from a University of Chicago economist. Some people might consider the reading a little laborious, but if you want to understand more about banking, regulatory capture, "crony capitalism", etc. then there are some pearls of wisdom in this wide ranging interview that are definitely worth your time.
