From the Publisher
Editors Note An award-winning New York Times reporter presents a moment-by-moment account of the recent financial collapse that documents state efforts to prevent an economic disaster, offering insight into the pivotal consequences of decisions made throughout the past decade.
Annotation Andrew Ross Sorkin's sobering account of the fast-moving events of the 2009 financial crisis has the makings of a film--with oversized egos, powerful financial corporations, and fast and furious actions by government as they all try to stay just ahead of a wave of failure that threatened the global economy. Sorkin, a reporter for the New York Times, shows how the financial crisis grew, why regulators failed to see or act on the signs, and how Wall Street and Washington saw the same crisis in different ways. He also tells who called the shots on the recovery plan, while providing new information and behind-the-scenes accounts in this study of the flow of money, power, and influence in America.
