Wall Street Under Oath: The Story of Our Modern Money Changers by Ferdinand Pecora

Ferdinand Pecora investigated with ruthlessly abandon the nation's most influential bankers and stockbrokers to determine what caused the Wall Street Crash of 1929, which in turn led to the Great Depression.

Wall Street's major players thought they were untouchable masters of their domain, but in the hot seat of the witness chair, eye-to-eye with Pecora, they were no match and fell like dominoes. The mighty J. P. Morgan was forced to admit he and many of his partners hadn't paid any income taxes in the previous two years and his reputation was tarnished.

Pecora Wall Street Under Oath in easy to understand language because he was afraid the public might get forgetful. And he was right.
