Andrew Ross Sorkin delivers the first true behind-the-scenes, moment-by-moment account of how the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression developed into a global tsunami. From inside the corner office at Lehman Brothers to secret meetings in South Korea, and the corridors of Washington, TOO BIG TO FAIL is the definitive story of the most powerful men and women in finance and politics grappling with success and failure, ego and greed, and, ultimately, the fate of the world's economy.

Als die Finanzwelt am Abgrund stand
Als die Investmentbank Lehman Brothers über Nacht zusammenbrach, löste das Schockwellen um den ganzen Erdball aus. Die Bank war eigentlich zu groß und wichtig gewesen, um sie pleitegehen zu lassen. In einer brillanten Erzählung, die den Leser direkt in die Büros der Mächtigen führt, rekonstruiert der Journalist Andrew R. Sorkin den dramatischen Ausbruch der Finanzkrise von 2008/2009 und die verzweifelten Bemühungen von Bankern und Politikern, den völligen Kollaps des Finanzsystems zu verhindern. Auf der Grundlage von ausführlichen Interviews, firmeninternen E-Mails und Protokollen liefert Sorkin die definitive Darstellung der Krise, die viele bisher unbekannte Details verrät.
