Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street

Author(s): Neil Barofsky


In this bracing, page-turning account of his stranger-than-fiction baptism into the corrupted ways of Washington, Neil Barofsky offers an irrefutable indictment, from an insider of the Bush and Obama administrations, of the mishandling of the $700 billion bailout fund. In vivid behind-the-scenes detail, he reveals proof of the extreme degree to which the US government officials bent over backward to serve the interests of Wall Street firms at the expense of the broader public - and at the expense of effective financial reform.
