Earlier this week, we reviewed Andrew Ross Sorkin’s book Too Big To Fail which provides a very interesting inside account of the most important events of the financial crisis of 2008. In a speech at the Foreign Policy Association in November, Mr. Sorkin provided some background information regarding the process of writing his book and how he was able to get “behind the scenes” to tell the story as a “human drama”. Read this article for more details and to view a video of the speech.
In the PBS NewsHour interview appearing below, authors Andrew Ross Sorkin and John Cassidy discuss Wall Street’s behavior in 2009 in light of their recent books on the financial crisis. Mr. Sorkin is the author of Too Big To Fail and Mr. Cassidy is the author of How Markets Fail. I am in the process of reading Mr. Sorkin’s book and have found the “insider” accounts of the crisis fascinating.
