The definitive report on what caused America's economic meltdown— and who was responsible
The financial and economic crisis has touched the lives of millions of Americans who have lost their jobs and their homes, but many have little understanding of how it happened. Now, in this very accessible report, readers can get the facts. Formed in May 2009, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) is a panel of 10 commissioners with experience in business, regulations, economics, and housing, chosen by Congress to explain what happened and why it happened. This panel has had subpoena power that enabled them to interview people and examine documents that no reporter had access to. The FCIC has reviewed millions of pages of documents, and interviewed more than 600 leaders, experts, and participants in the financial markets and government regulatory agencies, as well as individuals and businesses affected by the crisis. In the tradition of The 9/11 Commission Report, The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report will be a comprehensive book for the lay reader, complete with a glossary, charts, and easy-to-read diagrams, and a timeline that includes important events. It will be read by policy makers, corporate executives, regulators, government agencies, and the American people.
Why pay when u can get it free
Why pay $9.99 for this when u can get it free from the commission's website??
this entire report is available as a free download in PDF format from the commission's website. the conclusions are largely a political whitewash. from what I can determine, the HUD policymakers that encouraged selling houses the the poor so they could feel rich and ended up almost costing us the economy are given a pass.
Good, but not short!
Let me first say the report is free to download from the FCIC website. It gives a good overview of the financial crisis. If The Big Short sparked some curiosity in you, this is a good follow up read.
