The Sellout: How Three Decades of Wall Street Greed and Government Mismanagement Destroyed the Global Financial System – Banking Books PDF

Gasparino, Charles
Wiley 2009 Dewey Dec. 332

From critically acclaimed investigative journalist and CNBC personality Charles Gasparino comes a sweeping examination of the most volatile, anxiety-ridden era in our nation’s socioeconomic history. The winner of the 2009 Investigative Reporters and Editors Award for Books, The Sellout traces the recent implosion of the financial services business back to its roots in the late 1970s, when Wall Street embraced a new business model predicated on enormous risk. Gasparino reveals a startling trail of culpability—from the government bureaucrats who crafted housing policies to the Wall Street firms that underwrote and invested in risky debt, to the mortgage sellers who indiscriminately handed out loans, and finally to the homeowners who thought they could afford mansions on blue-collar wages.

13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown – Finance Books PDF

Johnson, Simon and Kwak, James
Pantheon 2010 Dewey Dec. 332.1

Even after the ruinous financial crisis of 2008, America is still beset by the depredations of an oligarchy that is now bigger, more profitable, and more resistant to regulation than ever. Anchored by six megabanks–Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley–which together control assets amounting, astonishingly, to more than 60 percent of the country’s gross domestic product, these financial institutions (now more emphatically “too big to fail”) continue to hold the global economy hostage, threatening yet another financial meltdown with their excessive risk-taking and toxic “business as usual” practices. How did this come to be–and what is to be done? These are the central concerns of 13 Bankers, a brilliant, historically informed account of our troubled political economy.

Parks, Tim
Norton 2005 Dewey Dec. 332.1

Their name is a byword for immense wealth and power, but before their renown as art patrons and noblemen, the Medici built their fortune on banking-specifically, on lending money at interest. In this brisk and witty narrative, Tim Parks uncovers the intrigues, dodges, and moral qualities that gave the Medici their edge. Vividly evoking the richness of the Florentine Renaissance and the Medici’s glittering circle, replete with artists, popes, and kings, Medici Money is a brilliant look into the origins of modern banking and its troubled relationship with art and religion.

In Fed We Trust: Ben Bernanke’s War on the Great Panic – Banking Books Free Online

Wessell, David
Crown Business 2009 Dewey Dec. 332.1

“Whatever it takes”. That was Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s vow as the worst financial panic in more than fifty years gripped the world and he struggled to avoid the once unthinkable: a repeat of the Great Depression. Under his leadership the Fed spearheaded the biggest government intervention in more than half a century and effectively became the fourth branch of government, with no direct accountability to the nation’s voters. In this penetrating look inside the most powerful economic institution in the world, David Wessel illuminates its opaque and undemocratic inner workings, while revealing how the Bernanke Fed led the desperate effort to prevent the world’s financial engine from grinding to a halt.
