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.

Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America

"Bundled securities...phony annual reports...bribed politicians...a crashed economy. These familiar-sounding conditions are just part of the legacy of the men who built the 19th century transcontinental railroads. In Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America, historian Richard White tells the story of corporate misconduct, incompetence and greed surrounding the construction of the transcontinental railroads that changed America. White reconstructs the convoluted paper trail that enriched Gilded Age capitalists and triggered three economic crisis in the late 19th century." Dave Mazza hosts.
