This is an excellent book that provides the historical background of the consolidation of financial institutions and the immense economic and political power the big banks now hold. The authors chronicle the government's role in its deregulation of the financial sector as well as its failure to adapt its oversight to monitor the shadow banking system and the new financial products that were responsible for the financial crisis. The book provides detailed information for understanding the current debate on "too big to fail" and "too big to prosecute." However, the narrator is horrible - his sentences are short and clipped and his intonation is extremely odd and annoying. His pronunciation is fine but it's hard to understand why this professional is allowed to speak in such a grating manner. I am sure he could do a great job at reading if he were to just adjust a little bit, in some places it is fine.
