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. (from the first line)
Johnson and Kwak examine not only how Wall Streets ideology, wealth, and political power among policy makers in Washington led to the financial debacle of 2008, but also what the lessons learned portend for the future. *Author: Johnson, Simon/ Kwak, James *Subtitle: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown *Publication Date: 2010/03/30 *Number of Pages: 304 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 6.75 *Height: 9.75
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.

Praise

"A detailed, dismaying and damning summation of recent Wall Street-Washington collusion--and the recurrent risk of financial folly." 02/15/2010

"[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." - Louis Uchitelle 04/25/2010
