The Monster: How a Gang of Predatory Lenders and Wall Street Bankers Fleeced America--And Spawned a Global Crisis


Who killed the economy? A page-turning, true-crime expose of the subprime salesmen and Wall Street alchemists who produced the biggest financial scandal in American history. It's hard to have a guilty conscience if you don't have a conscience. "Anything that benefited production - that benefited me and benefited my wallet - I'd do it." The sales force at Ameriquest Mortgage took this philosophy to heart.

They watched the Hollywood white-collar-crime flick Boiler Room as a training tape, studying how to pitch overpriced deals to unsuspecting home owners. They learned how to forge signatures on mortgage paperwork and create fake documents in cut-and-paste operations they dubbed The Lab or The Art Department.
