New York Times bestseller The Big Short is a fascinating and timely look at the economic aftermath of the 2008-09 financial crisis.
It explores the economic and political fallout of the crash as well as the political fallout that followed.
The story of how that crisis unfolded is well-written, and it includes the stories of some of the country’s wealthiest and most influential people, as well.
The book focuses on the 2008 crash, and the economic fallout that came after.
But the story doesn’t end there.
The author also takes a closer look at how our financial system is set up to help the rich get richer, and how our politicians and regulators are more likely to allow that system to operate than the general public.
The Big Short was published by Penguin Random House.
