The Chickenshit Club
Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives
This book delves into the reasons why no bankers were jailed after the financial crisis and why CEOs seem to escape punishment for wrongdoing. In a fast-paced, eye-opening look at the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission, Jesse Eisinger provides a clear and detailed glimpse into the evolution of the government's approach to corporate crime. With insider references and revealing looks into trading desks, corporate boardrooms, and the offices of prosecutors and FBI agents, this book is a wake-up call and a chilling read.
