    As soon as the financial crisis erupted, the finger-pointing began. Should the blame fall on Wall Street, Main Street, or Pennsylvania Avenue? On greedy traders, misguided regulators, sleazy subprime companies, cowardly legislators, or clueless home buyers? According to Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera, two of America's most acclaimed business journalists, the real answer is all of the above-and more. Many devils helped bring hell to the economy.

    Story

    I do not usually take the time to rate books, though I appreciate it when others put in a thoughtful review. This is actually my first Audible rate/review and I chose to do it specifically because I think so highly of this book. Bear in mind that I am a neophyte when it comes to market matters. Prior to listening to ATDAH, the only financial type book that I had read or listened to was Alan Greenspan's book, The Age of Turbulence. That was probably not the best choice for a newcomer and told me nothing much about the background to the 2008 crisis, which was what I was looking for. Like so many others, I wondered how such a financial mess could come about and how it was that it had caused avowed free market capitalists to clamour for bailouts. After many futile attempts to find a satisfactory answer, I saw the authors of ATDAH on the Daily Show and thought this book might just give me what I was looking for. It did, in spades. I recommend it to anyone I know who is looking to enlighten themselves as to the ingredients that went into the disastrous mix.
