Bernie Madoff's arrest couldn't have come at a extra darkly poetic second. monetary upheaval had plunged the USA right into a horrid recession. Then, on December eleven, 2008, Madoff's $65 billion Ponzi scheme got here to mild. A father became in via his sons; a son who took his personal existence; one other son death and estranged from his father; a lady on the middle of a storm—Madoff's tale was once a media magnet, voraciously ate up by means of a justice-seeking public.
Bernie Madoff and the Crisis is going past in simple terms investigative debts to check how and why Madoff turned the epicenter of public fury and titillation. Rooting her argument in severe sociology, Colleen P. Eren analyzes media assurance of this landmark case along unique interviews with dozens of reporters and editors taken with the reportage, the SEC Director of Public Affairs, and Bernie Madoff himself.
Turning the replicate again onto society, Eren locates Madoff inside of a broader reckoning approximately unfastened industry capitalism. She argues that our ideological and cultural trends to characteristic blame to individuals—be they regulators, sufferers, or "monsters" like Madoff—distracts us from extra systemic opinions. Bernie Madoff and the Crisis bargains clean perception into the 2008 quandary, even if we have now come to phrases with it, and what we have now but to achieve from the case of the century.
