Pursuing Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates and High Finance Carnivores: A conversation with Greg Palast

Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast blew the lid off voter fraud in 2000 and 2004 that threw the presidential elections into doubt. Greg has picked up the money trail again, following it to a corrupt link between Big Oil and High Finance that has produced record corporate profits whilecreating environmental disasters like the recent Gulf oil spill. This new story, captured in his latest book, Vulture's Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates, and High Finance Carnivores, reads like a pulp thriller as the Palast investigative team travels from Baku to the Arctic Circle in pursuit of this story.

The Monster: How a Gang of Predatory Lenders and Wall Street Bankers Fleeced America--And Spawned a Global Crisis


Who killed the economy? A page-turning, true-crime expose of the subprime salesmen and Wall Street alchemists who produced the biggest financial scandal in American history. It's hard to have a guilty conscience if you don't have a conscience. "Anything that benefited production - that benefited me and benefited my wallet - I'd do it." The sales force at Ameriquest Mortgage took this philosophy to heart.

They watched the Hollywood white-collar-crime flick Boiler Room as a training tape, studying how to pitch overpriced deals to unsuspecting home owners. They learned how to forge signatures on mortgage paperwork and create fake documents in cut-and-paste operations they dubbed The Lab or The Art Department.
