The Greatest Ever Bank Robbery: The Collapse Of The Savings And Loan Industry

2.8 of 5 stars 2.80  ·  rating details  ·  10 ratings  ·  2 reviews
Brilliantly, wittily and pitilessly, Mayer details the dereliction and dishonesty not only of the thrift industry operators but also of its supporting cadre of venal accountants, lawyers, and government authorities. A searching narrative retracing the fiasco that jeopardizes the entire banking system. Photographs.

Great subject. Very relevant even in 2010.
Writing bogged down with convoluted details.
Author meanders a lot while rarely summarizing.
Not a great read overall.
Lessons never learned...
