[email protected]: Mathew Padilla

In Chain of Blame, acclaimed financial reporters Paul Muolo and Mathew Padilla go behind the headlines to tell the inside story of why Wall Street's established investment banks bear much of the blame for the events that have cost millions of Americans their homes. As the dust settles around these life-shattering events, the blame game has begun.
