If you have never listened to these podcasts from public radio’s This American Life, it is probably the most accessible (and entertaining) account of the financial infrastructure that produced the subprime mortgage collapse and threatened to halt the global capitalist machine:
“The Giant Pool of Money”
“Return to the Giant Pool of Money”
A Short History of Donald Trump…and his link to New York City’s real-estate machine.
This Bowery Boys Podcast is especially relevant after reading:
Angotti, Tom. “The Real Estate Capital of the World.” New York for Sale: Community Planning Confronts Global Real Estate. Vol. 1. N.p.: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008. 37-79.
Thanks for posting this, Sara!!
