The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives
by Jesse Eisinger
Join fellow MBC members for lively discussions about topical books in a relaxed atmosphere, right after our meeting on Zoom!
About the book:
Why were no bankers put in prison after the financial crisis of 2008? Why do CEOs seem to commit wrongdoing with impunity? The problem goes beyond banks deemed “Too Big to Fail” to almost every large corporation in America—to pharmaceutical companies and auto manufacturers and beyond. The Chickenshit Club—an inside reference to prosecutors too scared of failure and too daunted by legal impediments to do their jobs—explains why in “an absorbing financial history, a monumental work of journalism…a first-rate study of the federal bureaucracy” (Bloomberg Businessweek).
