About the Author
Mary Fricker was working as the lone reporter for the Russian River News when Stephen Pizzo purchased the paper. She took a keen interest in the savings and loan stories and agreed to collaborate on Inside Job. After the book was published, Fricker became an independent journalist. She spent the next twenty years as a business reporter for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, a New York Times publication. Currently, she publishes www.repowatch.org, which tracks the repurchase market and shadow banking; the site won the 2012 Best in Business Award for Digital Blogs from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. In 2010, she received the McGill Medal for Journalistic Courage from the University of Georgia for her work with the Chauncey Bailey Project in Oakland, California. Among her other awards are three Investigative Reporters and Editors Awards, the UCLA Gerald Loeb Award, the George Polk Award, several New York Times Chairman’s Awards, the National Headliner Award, and an Associated Press award for best business reporting on the mortgage crisis. Mary is now retired and living in Sebastopol, California.
Paul Muolo was a lead reporter based in New York for the savings and loan industry paper National Thrift News. When word of Pizzo’s stories in the Russian River News reached Muolo’s paper, he was sent to California to see if there was more to report. After two meetings with Pizzo and Fricker, Muolo agreed that the subject was of national importance, and the three began working together on what became Inside Job. Muolo is also the coauthor of Chain of Blame, which was named one of the ten best business books of 2008 by BusinessWeek. He also serves as executive editor of National Mortgage News, the leading independent trade publication of the residential finance industry. He is a member of the NMN staff that received the 1990 Polk Award for its coverage of the savings and loan crisis, and his weekly web column, “What We’re Hearing,” is one of the most popular in the mortgage industry. Muolo’s freelance work has appeared in Barron’s, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Euromoney, Playboy, and other publications.
