The sky is falling!

The sky is falling!

What’s that? The sky has already fallen?

Damn, I hate being late to the party.

Apparently, it’s old news that the world financial system was on the edge of collapse over the course of recent years and those fat, rich bastards on Wall Street—and President Obama’s right, it is fun to hate on them—nearly sent us all into oblivion.

ROGER LOWENSTEIN AUDIO EXCERPT: “Wall Street messed up big time. I think we want a president to say this is a real risk; these financial instruments got out of hand. You can keep playing with them but we’re going to set some rules, just as we set rules on the highway. You might want to drive 90, but for the benefit of all we’re going to say 65 is the speed limit. Obama is trying to set down some speed limits in the financial markets.”

But what you may not know is who and what brought this mess upon us. That’s where financial journalist Roger Lowenstein fits in.

Lowenstein’s new book, The End of Wall Street—which entered the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists at #1 upon publication—is a perfectly timed dissection of what happened and who’s to blame. Lowenstein even starts the book with a handy roster of the play’s characters so it’s easy to keep track of the villains.

And his timing on this show is perfect, since less than an hour ago, Obama was at Cooper Union in Manhattan, addressing the titans of Wall Street on this very subject.

There aren’t a lot of good guys in this multi-act tragedy.

Lowenstein is joining us on Mr. Media today to promote his appearance on Tuesday, April 17, 2010, at Forum Truth in Sarasota, Florida.
