Summary
As the special inspector general in charge of overseeing the distribution of the bailout money, Neil Barofsky found that the officials at the Treasury Department were in thrall to the interests of big banks. In vivid detail he reveals how they failed to hold the banks accountable even as they disregarded major job losses and refused to help struggling homeowners.
