The End of Wall Street

By Roger Lowenstein
With razor-sharp insight, bestselling author Roger Lowenstein tells the full story of the end of Wall Street as we knew it.
Roger Lowenstein's "The End of Wall Street" unfurls a gripping chronicle of the 2008 financial collapse, drawing on 180 interviews with top government officials and Wall Street CEOs. Lowenstein looks to the roots of the crisis to reveal how America succumbed to the siren song of easy debt and speculative mortgages. Combining deep analysis with sizzling narrative, "The End of Wall Street" charts the end of an era of unprecedented and unwarranted optimism while looking ahead to the legacy of the bailout.
