Praise
"A detailed, dismaying and damning summation of recent Wall Street-Washington collusion--and the recurrent risk of financial folly."
"[T]his book's great virtue is its skillful synthesis of what is already on the record....13 Bankers is persuasive penance--a well-documented appeal to embrace once again Thomas Jefferson's skepticism of concentrated banking power."

From the Publisher
Annotation In this stunning investigative report into the strong connections between Wall Street and Washington two journalists argue that the financial community has far too much influence--and the 2008 financial crisis bears that out.
First Line Friday, March 27, 2009, was a lovely day in Washington, D.C.--but not for the global economy. The U.S stock market had fallen 40 percent in just seven months, while the U.S economy had lost 4.1 million jobs. Total world output was shrinking for the first time since World War II.
