Excellent insight into the greatest criminal economic travesty ever visited on the American people. The $7,000,000,000 (trillion) loss is second only to Bernie Madoff and the cumulative Ponzi schemers. The revelation of the inept complicity of the U.S. governments actions/inaction visa vie the SEC is not surprising. However, it is stunning in its scope and duration.
The authors research, verification and "novel" like delivery makes for an intriguing "who dunnit." The folks who saw the disaster coming years before it happened and were able to profit HUGELY from it is a testimonial to the American entrepreneur.
Zuckerman's skill in presenting arcane, complicated and obfuscating financial "mumbo jumbo" is brilliant--this stuff can be mind numbing in its complexity. It should be a business school required reading as well as critical to every Americans financial health.
