    The financial crisis that exploded in 2008 isn’t past but prologue. The stunning rise, fall, and rescue of Wall Street in the bubble-and-bailout era was the coming-out party for the network of looters who sit at the nexus of American political and economic power. The grifter class - made up of the largest players in the financial industry and the politicians who do their bidding - has been growing in power for a generation.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick Egan?

    I will now only purchase audio books read by the author. I read the paper copy of Griftopia and I highly recommend it. The tones of shock, frustration and humor flow out of the pages of the paper book and I was looking forward to a more vivid telling of the story. Egan's tone is detached, but I hesitate to blame him. Only the author knows his work and experience intimately. I am sad that I am out $22, but infinitely more sad to see such a great disservice done to this important book. Please get Taibbi to narrate his own work. I will happily pay another $22. Cheers.
