journalists the real answer is all of the above and Many devils helped bring hell to the economy And the full story in all of its complexity and detail is like the legend of the blind men and the elephant Almost everyone has missed the big picture Almost no one has put all the pieces together All the Devils Are Here goes back several decades to weave the hidden history of the financial crisis in a way no previous book has done It explores the motivations of everyone from famous CEOs cabinet secretaries and politicians to anonymous lenders borro Along with Michael Lewis The Big Short this

you know a financial person is lying His lips are moving3 Bubbles happen They ve been going on since tulips in Holland in the 1700s This bubble never looks like the last one so we don t believe they will happen this time One very important comment was that they happen when greed overcomes fear Good point well illustrated in the book4 I kept thinking How in the world could the average investor have known what was going to happen I do know several people who pulled out just before the crash but they are in the minority Most of us lost at least 30% of our savings I m heading toward the finish but wanted to share my thoughts If you really want to know what happened this is the book to read Don t worry it s really interesting as well as informative Calling Cards: Uncover Your Calling
