This article intends to (i) identify the recent rapid development of the transparency phenomenon in the context of financial services, while noting its relative lack of definition and practical application in jurisprudence and regulatory usage; and (ii) focus on select transparency oversight issues and conflicts related to the Treasury (in the administration of the Troubled Asset Relief Program ("TARP")) and to the Federal Reserve (the "Fed"). The article will suggest some possible limits related to transparency expectations.
