Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States. Some say that he used the Presidency as a "bully pulpit" from which he preached to the American people, publicized corporate misdeeds, and insisted that the interests of the entire nation be served. He broke up big business monopolies and was a strong advocate for conversation. Upon leaving office in 1909, he had expanded the powers of the Presidency and advanced the prestige of the United States as a world power. (01:59)

The devil's in the details - regulating financial innovation
With elections in India in a few months, the war on terror must be squarely at the centre of the political agenda. Not far away will be regulation of finance.
