Overview

Until she quit in 2002, Prins (a senior fellow with the public policy center Demos) saw the sinister nexus of banking, large corporations, and politics from the inside as an upper-level manager at Goldman Sachs and other large finance firms. In this work she draws on that experience to expose the systemic corruption governing these relationships. Her main concern throughout the work is how years of banking deregulation pushed through Congress by pliant politicians have allowed such corruption to flourish, even if a few malefactors occasionally wind up serving jail sentences.
