In an effort to expand our online engagement around financial regulatory reform, the White House is trying something new.
The President’s speech on Friday was covered by a number of blogs, including three that will be following up with exclusive White House interviews. The editors of those websites have been collecting questions from their readers and tomorrow senior White House officials will answer them.
First is a website self-described as a "multimedia financial-services company dedicated to building the world's greatest investment community", The Motley Fool:
This is Washington's way of saying that they value the community of investors that gathers here at Fool.com. We've got plenty of questions about the White House's financial reform plans, but as ambassadors of Fool.com, we want your voice to be heard.
This is your chance to speak to the people who are shaping the policies that will affect our portfolios for years to come. Tell us what issues you want to see addressed. Just use the "comments" section below to tell us what we should ask the White House.
The second is a popular resource for consumer-driven advice on a wide range of topics, including finance, The Consumerist:
Watch his video and leave your questions in the comments.... Then, next Tuesday, we'll interview Diana Farrell, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, get you some answers, and post the video. Deal?
And finally, given the very active "mommy blogging" community’s unique perspective on financial decisions, we asked The Motherhood to gather questions from concerned parents.
So learn more about financial regulatory reform, join the conversation happening at these sites and check back tomorrow for the follow-up videos.
