Audiobooks on the financial crisis.

by Gregor Smart

Poorer JPMorgan, those pesky credit derivatives caused a bit of trouble no?  It reminds me of the financial meltdown of 2008.  If you’re looking for something to listen to on your way into work consider checking out one our audiobooks on the topic.

The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System from Crisis—and Lost
 
 

Coincidentally, I happened to be watching Margin Call when the story about JPMorgan hit.  Great movie, but what movie with Stanley Tucci isn’t? It was nominated for an Academy Award for best original screenplay, but lost to Midnight in Paris.   If you’re looking for a fictionalized behind the scenes look at an investment firm in crisis, this is recommended watching.

Set in the high-stakes world of Wall Street, Margin Call is an entangling thriller involving the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis.
