Description

"Anticipate brisk sales--this book succeeds as a lesson on the credit mess."--Bloomberg.com

Taking in everything from subprime mortgages in the United States to international trading floors, How I Caused the Credit Crunch is a vivid and personal account of twenty-first century banking excess. Tracing seven years at the forefront of the credit markets, it is both a powerful tale of lost innocence and an explanation of how the collective folly, frailty, and greed at the heart of the banking crisis were able to happen.

Tetsuya Ishikawa grew up in London and has worked at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and ABN AMRO.
