  1. He has my sympathy, but really? Matt Taibbi already wrote this book, he called it Griftopia, and as far as I can tell, his is the definitive first-hand reporting. So did Greg Palast, he called it Vulture’s Picnic. To a lesser extent, Michael Lewis documented the same crimes in his book, The Big Short.

    Honestly, there is no meaningful doubt that indictable, convictable crimes happened, and it is equally undeniable that no indictments on the scale of what we saw after the S&L crisis or the dot-com crisis has happened. Everybody knows this. And everybody knows that there’s nothing we can do about it. So while I agree with Charles Ferguson, and while I sympathize with him, did we really need a fourth identical book on it?

    The reason he says he wants to roll back Dodd-Frank is not to get votes, it is to get money.

    That’s it in a nutshell, isn’t it?

    If Dodd–Frank doesn’t work, why keep it?
