July 27, 2011 Leave a comment
What caused the home mortgage crisis? Who—if anyone—is to blame? In this important new book, co-authors Gretchen Morgenson (a journalist with long experience covering business) and Joshua Rosner (a financial analyst who raised early warnings in the mortgage market) provide some answers. Their analysis ranges from New York to Washington, scrutinizing the actions of policy makers, legislators, regulators, and financiers. Looking at the financial failures of Fannie Mae and HUD as well as Wall Street and the Fed, the authors create a catalogue of culprits, including key individuals such as former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, Congressman Barney Frank, and Fannie Mae CEO James Johnson. Join us for a comprehensive discussion of one of the key events in the current economic meltdown.
