Elizabeth Warren, Likely to Head New Consumer Agency, Provokes Strong Feelings

Brady Dennis writes in The Washington Post about Elizabeth Warren: “She was the child of a cash-strapped family on the Oklahoma plains, a teenage wife and young mother who became the only member of her immediate family to graduate from college, then went on to teach at Harvard Law School. Drawn to the field of bankruptcy, she initially took a jaundiced view of the irresponsible spendthrifts she believed were gaming the system, only to discover during her research a humanity in their stories that altered her life’s work.”
