Sue Baker's view...

From the maker of the film, Inside Job, everything you didn’t want to know about the World Financial Crisis. He concentrates not just on what has been done but how these same financiers have ridden the storm, continuing to draw in obscene amounts of money and emerge unchallenged and out of gaol. It’s a book to make you despair and to make you angry, everyone should read it to find out how we’re being screwed by the financial elite – the criminal elite as Ferguson would have it.

Synopsis

Inside Job : The Rogues Who Pulled Off the Heist of the Century by Charles Ferguson

Charles Ferguson was only able to show 2% of the material he gathered while making his sensational documentary Inside Job. Now, in this must-read 'sequel', he delivers the rest.

Based on explosive interviews conducted by Ferguson, as well as documents buried in court records and archives, Inside Job the book traces how the financial industry and its enablers went rogue. With clarity, toughness, and stunning freshness, he offers an unrivalled accounting of our political and economic leadership - and what they must do now to ensure our future.

Reviews

'Ferguson presents a fierce indictment of predatory activities of parts of the financial system and of the corruption of democracy that 'big money'
financial lobbying has caused. A book well worth reading regardless of whether you fully agree or not with all of its arguments

Nouriel Roubini

- Professor at New York University and author of Crisis Economics 'This take-no-prisoners account of the financial crisis follows the money, connects the dots, names names, and asks the questions our leaders still refuse to answer: how have those responsible for the crisis not been held accountable, and how can we make sure it doesn't happen again?
Arianna Huffington

- Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post 'He's clever, he's funny, he doesn't pull punches... If only righteous fury were always this enjoyable.
Guardian

'One of the outstanding journalistic achievements of the past decade.'
Daily Mail on the film Inside Job

Financial Times

'This take-no-prisoners account of the financial crisis follows the money, connects the dots, names names...'
