ADVANCE PRAISE

"Nicole Gelinas has written a fine book about the long prehistory of financial catastrophes that culminated in the extraordinary collapse of the banking industry in September of 2008. The book is lucid and sober, simple but not simplistic, and essential background to understanding the inherent vulnerabilities of modern finance."
Richard A. Posner, U.S. Circuit Judge and author of A Failure of Capitalism: The Crisis of '08 and the Descent into Depression

"Nicole Gelinas has done the country a great favor by explaining concisely and cogently the origins of the financial crisis of 2008 and how—if we have the political will—we can avoid a repeat in the future. After the Fall is an instant classic that should be required reading in both Washington, D.C. and Wall Street."
John Steele Gordon, author of An Empire of Wealth: The Epic History of American Economic Power


"When it comes our flawed financial system, most writers generally lob big bombs and hope for, at best, maximum splatter. Nicole Gelinas by contrast sends a precision missile that neatly and elegantly takes the thing to pieces—and lays the ground for a better structure. Hail Gelinas."
Amity Shlaes, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations


" A powerful analysis of how the too-big-to fail policy has undermined public trust in markets"
Luigi Zingales, Robert C. Mc Cormack Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance, University of Chicago-Booth School of Business and author of Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists
