"Schechter goes right for the jugular in this rich and informative analysis of the financial crisis and its roots. Not errors, accident, market uncertainties, and so on, but crime: major and serious crime. A harsh judgment, but it's not easy to dismiss the case that he constructs." —Noam Chomsky

Veteran journalist Danny Schechter investigates a complex web of fraud and crime that he shows played a major—if largely unreported—role in bringing the economy down. His four-year investigation focuses on three interconnected cesspools of corruption: what the FBI calls an "epidemic of mortgage fraud," predatory and deceptive securitization by Wall Street, and insurance scams.

Danny Schechter is a veteran journalist who writes and speaks about economic and media issues. He is a multiple Emmy Award winner, having been a producer for ABC News, CNN and other major networks. His daily blog ‘News Dissector’ appears on, the website he edits, with weekly online commentaries on Huffington Post, Buzzflash, Alternet, Global Research, ZNet, Creative-I and many others. He has directed numerous films including In Debt We Trust and Plunder: The Crime of our Time.
