Did the government-constructed narratives surrounding the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the 2008 financial crisis shape the policymaking that led to the Dodd-Frank Act. In Bad History, Worse Policy, Peter Wallison argues that every major provision of the Dodd-Frank Act can be traced directly to that narrative, which ignored the government’s own role and focused entirely on the errors of the private sector. What are the consequences and fall out from Wallison’s assertion?
