Stanley Fischer served as First Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund from 1994 to 2001. IMF Essays from a Time of Crisis collects sixteen essays written for the most part during his time at the IMF, each updated with Fischer's later reflections on the issues raised.

Matthew Yglesias » TARP Profits
I’ve been complaining for a while now about the tendency of commentators to treat the $700 billion TARP bailout as if it’s 100 percent losses when it’s always been clear that some large fraction of that money was going to be recouped.
