Levin-Coburn Report on the Financial Crisis Released

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.
