    Default Contest #1: Best Interview Question for Banking Industry Expert

    Let's say you got to interview one of the top experts -- arguably the world's top expert -- in banking and money:
    "Since 1967, he's written 12 books on Banking, Investments, Markets and Money. He's been a Columnist for American Banker; Member, President's Panel on Educational Research and Development (Kennedy and Johnson administrations); Member, President's Commission on Housing (1981-82); Consultant, Twentieth Century Fund and Carnegie, Ford, Kettering, and Sloan Foundations (1962-1966); Consultant to the American Council of Learned Societies (1962-1964)."
    And let's say you are going to interview him in mid-July and get to ask him one question. What would it be?

    For our first contest, we're asking registered Forum Members to submit questions to ask our interviewee. (We'll tell you who it is later. You're welcome to guess, but we will neither confirm nor deny.)

    What kind of question? For example, you may be wondering:

    1) What is the greatest risk facing the U.S. banking system today?

    2) Do you think that the U.S. economy is at the turning point in the credit cycle and will it "be different this time"? We won't have a crises like the one that caused the U.S. banking system to freeze for six months in the early 1990s?

    3) Do you think the U.S. banking system may require help from the Fed or even a tax payer bailout ala the Savings and Loan Crisis if housing prices decline significantly in many areas of the country at the same time?
