Makers and Takers
Makers and Takers The Rise of Finance and the Fall of American Business By Foroohar, Rana Book - 2016

[Update, regarding the mediamatters link above, to anyone who chooses to believe the stories from a CNN analyst, everytime any CNN reporter tried to report the news accurately these last ten years, they were summarily fired {just ask Amber Lyon and the last fellow they fired} - - being a CNN analyst - - you know those types who claimed MH370 went down near Australia - - is highly suspect. Also, Media Matters was founded by David Brock, former republicon who now supports the neocon, HRC.]
Originally, this book appeared interesting, but after perusing it, I feel the reader will be none the wiser. A soft-glove approach to predatory capitalism, where the author really never explains anything [she is correct on repeating one or two facts, but the book is 300 plus pages?] but is constantly insinuating her opinions as fact!
You will be none the wiser on CDSes, and how they were structured as the largest insurance swindle instrument in human history!
She mentions that Vanguard Group, Fidelity and BlackRock control substantial stock in American corporations, but did not mention that Vanguard Group, Fidelity, BlackRock and State Street are the majority shareholders in the majority of major corporations in North America and Europe!
Have to rate this book poor. . .
[For a fuller explanation of what the author should have explained, please see my comments under Sebastian Mallaby's book, More Money Than God {Mallaby being a CFR stooge, BTW}.]
