The End of Wall Street
Roger Lowenstein is the author of five books, including New York Times bestsellers Buffett, When Genius Failed and, this year, The End of Wall Street. He also is a contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and a columnist for Bloomberg. He has written for The New Republic and The Wall Street Journal, where he formerly was a staff reporter, and many other publications.
Lowenstein talked about his experiences in researching and writing The End of Wall Street (about the 2008 collapse), and offered his perspective on the causes and enduring legacy of the crash, including the recent financial reform, as well as some thoughts on some of his earlier works, including When Genius Failed.
You can purchase one of Lowenstein's books on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
