Editorial Reviews

Alex Blumberg
The majority report reads a lot like a book, and a bit of a potboiler at that. The commission conducted hundreds of hours of interviews, with industry insiders, policymakers, whistle-blowers and regulators. And the pages of the majority's report are strewn with quotes from these interviews — foreboding, eye-popping quotes.
Annie Lowrey
With those books, you'll never need to read anything that emerges from the FCIC. But if you do, read the good stuff: the interviews in which it grilled executives from Wall Street and the housing industry. The commission called in the loan-makers and bankers that caused the crisis and forced them to answer questions about their businesses—all for the public record.
Gretchen Morgenson
The report still makes for compelling reading because so little has changed as a result of the debacle, in both banking and in its regulation.

Meet the Author

The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission was established as part of the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act (Public Law 111-21) passed by Congress and signed by the President in May 2009. This independent, 10-member panel was composed of private citizens with experience in areas such as housing, economics, finance, market regulation, banking and consumer protection. Six members of the Commission were appointed by the Democratic leadership of Congress and four by the Republican leadership. The Commission’s statutory instructions set out 22 specific topics for inquiry and called for the examination of the collapse of major financial institutions that failed or would have failed if not for exceptional assistance from the government.

    Highly Recommended

    After watching Sony Pictures "Inside Job" and HBO's "Too Big to Fail," I went looking for more information. I avoided this book for quite a while thinking that, as a government document, it would be very dry and boring. I was wrong; the book is extremely well written and informative. I am an economics professor and am thinking about teaming with with a colleague from the history department to teach a course on the the US economic collapse with this book at the main text.

    Well written and cogent

    The report reads well, and provides more background than To Big To Fail, which is also very good.
