The Lessons [Not] Learned From The Crash

Crown Business Books

Phew, good thing the Great Recession is over.  We sure learned a lot of lessons from the financial collapse of 2008.  Didn't we? 

Time magazine Assistant Managing Editor Rana Foroohar says no; not only did major figures go unpunished, but the banking system was not reformed significantly enough to avoid a repeat. 

In her book Makers and Takers, Foroohar points out that much of American business has now embraced the approach that the financial system rode to near-ruin.  The author joins us to explain how things went wrong, and why they remain uncorrected.
