The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission has announced that it will release its report on the causes of the financial crisis on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011. The FCIC’s conclusions as to the causes of the financial crisis will be included in the report. In December 2010, the FCIC Republican Commissioners have released a Financial Crisis Primer including preliminary findings and conclusions that will be included in the final report. At the time of the Primer’s release, the FCIC noted that since the transmission of the report of the FCIC to the President and Congress requires a majority vote of the Commission, the Primer’s findings and conclusions do not constitute the Commission’s report.
