And Then the Roof Caved In: How Wall Street's Greed and Stupidity Brought Capitalism to Its Knees
      
ISBN-10: 0470474238
 

And Then the Roof Caved In lays bare the truth of the credit crisis, whose defining emotion at every turn has been greed, and whose defining failure is the complicity of the U.S. government in letting that greed rule the day. Written by CNBC's David Faber, this book painstakingly details the truth of what really happened with compelling characters who offer their first-hand accounts of what they did and why they did it.

 

Page by page, Faber explains the events of the previous seven years that planted the seeds for the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. He begins in 2001, when the Federal Reserve embarked on an unprecedented effort to help the economy recover from the attacks of 9/11 by sending interest rates to all time lows. Faber also gives you an up-close look at where the crisis was incubated and unleashed upon the world-Wall Street-and introduces you to insiders from investment banks and mortgage lenders to ratings agencies, that unwittingly conspired to insure lending standards were abandoned in the head long rush for profits.

 

  • Based on two years of research, this book provides deep background into the current credit crisis
  • Offers the insights of experienced professionals-from Alan Greenspan to prominent bankers and regulators-who were on the front lines
  • Created by David Faber, the face of morning business news on CNBC, and host of the network's award winning documentaries

 

From regulators who tried to stop this problem before it swung out of control to hedge fund managers who correctly foresaw the coming housing crash and profited from it, And Then the Roof Caved In shows you how the crisis we currently face came to be.

This was a very interesting & informative book. The chapters were short and well laid out.
The test followed the book easily so it was a great test to cover the material. Highly recommend!
4 STARS
I have used the CPE subscription a few times now. I find it easy to check out books from the library or buy them & then take the test. It\'s very cost effective.

My request would be for more choices to be added. I have done many of them & cannot realistically repeat. Also, the books that have short chapters or bulleted points make it easier to follow along for test purposes
1 STARS
Overall it is good but I have few notes to make:

1. I suggest you add more courses.
2. Materials/Books are so long (400+ pages each courses). The ones I have taken. I would suggest they use more precise/short materials in the future.

Other than that the price is fair and I am considering renewing.
