On the financial crisis

How exactly did it all come to this?  Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World by Michael Lewis (author of The Big Short) is a new book presenting a darkly humorous look at the effects of the financial crisis on other countries and accusing greedy debtors in California and Washington, DC.  Ron Suskind's Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President also examines the financial crisis by drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews and in-depth research, from the trading floors of lower Manhattan to the power corridors inside the Beltway.  If this topic interests you but you find these books too heavy, you can also check out the new documentary Inside Job, which traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.
