Griftopia tells story behind the most audacious power grab in American history: The financial crisis that exploded in 2008; the rise, fall, and rescue of Wall Street and the grifter class—made up of the largest financial players and politicians—who had been transferring wealth upward for generations through increasingly complex financial mechanisms and political maneuvers. In Griftopia, Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi unravels the whole story, digging beyond the headlines to get into the deeper roots and wider implications of the rise of the grifters.
