Publisher Description

The New York Times bestseller hailed as "the best business book of 2010" (Huffington Post).
As soon as the financial crisis erupted, the finger-pointing began. Should the blame fall on Wall Street, Main Street, or Pennsylvania Avenue? On greedy traders, misguided regulators, sleazy subprime companies, cowardly legislators, or clueless home buyers?

According to Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera, two of America's most acclaimed business journalists, the real answer is all of the above-and more. Many devils helped bring hell to the economy. And the full story, in all of its complexity and detail, is like the legend of the blind men and the elephant. Almost everyone has missed the big picture. Almost no one has put all the pieces together.

All the Devils Are Here goes back several decades to weave the hidden history of the financial crisis in a way no previous book has done. It explores the motivations of everyone from famous CEOs, cabinet secretaries, and politicians to anonymous lenders, borrowers, analysts, and Wall Street traders. It delves into the powerful American mythology of homeownership. And it proves that the crisis ultimately wasn't about finance at all; it was about human nature.

...and they are Legion

The Devils referred to in the title are those who help contributed to the Financial Crisis, and those who stood by rather than prevent it. The fact that there are so many Devils profiled shows how dystopian the system had become. The fact that the one or two Angles profiled were treated as misfits and mutineers shows how hard it will be to make things right. Still every citizen should read, or listen, to this book so that they can recognize the Devils when they offer up their tempting but ultimately destructive temptations. By destructive, I mean to us, not to them. Though they indeed are Devils, few of them are living in the Hell the rest of us have been condemned to.
