Today I particularly love being a law professor. Why? Because the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations released its 635-page final report on the Financial Crisis yesterday and gosh darn it, I'm going to read the whole thing.
According to the press release, it should be an interesting read: "The report catalogs conflicts of interest, heedless risk-taking and failures of federal oversight that helped push the country into the deepest recession since the Great Depression." The committee reviewed nearly 6,000 pages of documents, including e-mails and internal memos from Washington Mutual, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, and other parties deeply involved in the residential mortgage bubble.
Here is a link to the press release, and at the bottom of the press release you can click through to download the full report.
