Some brief overview of this book

In The Great American Stickup, celebrated journalist Robert Scheer uncovers the hidden story behind one of the greatest financial crimes of our time the Wall Street financial crash of 2008 and the consequent global recession. Instead of going where other journalists have gone in search of this storythe board rooms and trading floors of the big Wall Street firmsScheer goes back to Washington, D. C., a veritable crime scene, beginning in the 1980s, where the captains of the finance industry, their lobbyists and allies among leading politicians destroyed an American regulatory system that had been functioning effectively since the era of the New Deal.

This is a story largely forgotten or overlooked by the mainstream media, who wasted more than two decades with their boosterish coverage of Wall Street. Scheer argues that the roots of the disaster go back to the free-market propaganda of the Reagan years and, most damagingly, to the bipartisan deregulation of the banking industry undertaken with the full support of "progressive" Bill Clinton. In fact, if this debacle has a name, Scheer suggests, it is the "Clinton Bubble," that era when the administration let its friends on Wall Street write legislation that razed decades of robust financial regulation.

It was Wall Street and Democratic Party darling Robert Rubin along with his clique of economist super-friendsAlan Greenspan, Lawrence Summers, and a few otherswho inflated a giant real estate bubble by purposely not regulating the derivatives market, resulting in the pain and hardship millions are experiencing now. The Great American Stickup is both a brilliant telling of the story of the Clinton financial clique and the havoc it wroughtinformed by whistleblowers such as Brooksley Born, who goes on the record for Scheerand an unsparing anatomy of the American business and political class. It is also a cautionary tale those who form the nucleus of the Clinton clique are now advising the Obama administration.
