I am thrilled to have James Kwak join me this evening, April 11th, from 8-9pm ET on No Quarter Radio’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle.
If Wall Street banks are ‘too big to fail,’ what is America to do? While those on Wall Street fight to maintain their power base and those in Washington deal with their conflicted interests between Wall Street and Main Street, two individuals lay out a very simple solution.
Simon Johnson and James Kwak convincingly answer that if banks are in fact ‘too big to fail,’ then ‘make them smaller.’ Johnson and Kwak highlight this reality and so much more in 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown, a book that was just released but will surely sweep the country. The reviews so far are off the charts. Kwak and Johnson are widely followed at their site Baseline Scenario, which, in my opinion, is the most well written and informative financial and economic website in the blogosphere. (Sense on Cents being a close second!!)
What are people saying about 13 Bankers? Well, let’s stop and start with Elizabeth Warren, Professor of Law Harvard Law School and Chair, TARP Congressional Oversight Panel. She writes:
“The best explanation yet for how the smart guys on Wall Street led us to the brink of collapse. In the process, Johnson and Kwak demystify our financial system, stripping it down to expose the ruthless power grab that lies at its center.”
