The definitive big picture on the financial crisis, from the man behind the Oscar-winning documentary that exposed the workings of the new economic elite Based on explosive interviews conducted personally by award-winning filmmaker Charles Ferguson, as well as newly released court documents and information buried in archives, Inside Job traces in gripping detail how the financial industry and its enablers went rogue. Ferguson shows how three decades of deregulation created a predator nation and invited the crisis, particularly as key players cycled through positions of power in government, independent academia, and big-ticket finance. With clarity, toughness, and stunning freshness, he delivers an unrivalled accounting of how the new economic oligarchy have wrested control of our politics and our prospects for eventual recovery.

Product Description:

Charles Ferguson was only able to show 2% of the material he gathered while making his sensational documentary Inside Job. Now, in this must-read 'sequel', he delivers the rest. Based on explosive interviews conducted by Ferguson, as well as documents buried in court records and archives, Inside Job the book traces how the financial industry and its enablers went rogue. With clarity, toughness, and stunning freshness, he offers an unrivalled accounting of our political and economic leadership - and what they must do now to ensure our future.

Review:

Ferguson presents a fierce indictment of predatory activities of parts of the financial system and of the corruption of democracy that big money financial lobbying has caused. A book well worth reading regardless of whether you fully agree or not with all of its arguments. --Nouriel Roubini, Professor at New York University and author of Crisis Economics

This take-no-prisoners account of the financial crisis follows the money, connects the dots, names names, and asks the questions our leaders still refuse to answer: how have those responsible for the crisis not been held accountable, and how can we make sure it doesn t happen again? --Arianna Huffington, Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post

As gripping as any thriller. --The Guardian on Charles Ferguson s film Inside Job

He's clever, he's funny, he doesn't pull his punches... [Ferguson's] evisceration of the Obama government's alliance with the banks opens a new front in the war on Wall Street.... If only righteous fury were always this enjoyable. --The Guardian

One of the outstanding journalistic achievements of the past decade --Daily Mail on the film Inside Job

‘I was totally gripped and have sat up in bed every night reading [Inside Job] until my eyes just couldn’t stay open any more. I liked the film, and the book is even better... you have to read this book.' FT Weekend review
