Read from November 25 to 27, 2011, read count: 2

A fantastic, wide-ranging look into the factors that led to the financial crisis, and why it developed the way it did. The interview format and omnivorous subject allows the discussion to snap from the automated "black box" trading to the effects of emotion on risk-taking. Highly recommended, especially if you're familiar with the general course of events but want to learn more about how it all fits together.
