Writing/investigative reporting is OK, but the content exposing the behavior of all involved is disheartening.

Would recommend reading Hot Money and the Politics of Debt, by well-known Canadian social economist, R.T. Nayor - - written in the 1980s, but far superior to Posner's book. Can't trust Posner after that hatchet job of his on the Kennedy murder.
