When the financial crisis reached its zenith in the fall of 2008, everyone was looking for someone to blame. We still are. In the new book All the Devils Are Here, Bethany McLean, author of the Smartest Guys in the Room about the Enron scandal, and New York Times columnist Joe Nocera, go back to beginnings of the crisis to uncover whodunit. They argue that it wasn’t just a couple of greedy financial guys who created the problem. As the title suggests, it was All the Devils, from Wall Street to Washington, who played a part.
