This book shocks with a detailed view of all the things, beginning two decades before the fall of 2008, that led to the financial crisis. In doing so, it underscores, whether by the authors’ design or not, the tight interweaving of Wall Street and the US Government (especially the US Treasury, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac).
