Charles Ferguson was only able to show 2% of the material he gathered while making his sensational documentary Inside Job. Now, in this must-read 'sequel', he delivers the rest. Based on explosive interviews conducted by Ferguson, as well as documents buried in court records and archives, Inside Job the book traces how the financial industry and its enablers went rogue. With clarity, toughness, and stunning freshness, he offers an unrivalled accounting of our political and economic leadership - and what they must do now to ensure our future.
