Fatal risk: a cautionary tale of AIG’s corporate suicide by Roddy Boyd. (Hoboken, N.J. : Wiley, 2011)

Synopsis

The inside story of the company at the center of the financial maelstrom and how it brought down the entire economic system.

Written by star investigative reporter Roddy Boyd, Fatal Risk is the first book to tell the complete story of AIG’s pivotal role in the 2008 financial crisis. Relying on insider information available to no other reporter—including the personal notes and records of key players—he takes you behind the scenes at AIG, Goldman Sachs, and the New York Fed, to shine a light on how the company was run, how the same qualities that made it a global insurance and financial giant led to its downfall, and, ultimately, how its collapse nearly brought about the unraveling of the world financial system.
