[Download] ✤ Homewreckers By Aaron Glantz – Heartforum.co.uk How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins Hedge Fund Magnates Crooked Banks and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American DreamIn the spirit of Evicted Bait and Swi How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins Hedge Fund Magnates Crooked Banks and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American DreamIn the spirit of Evicted Bait and Switch and The Big Short a shocking heart wrenching investigation into America’s housing crisis and the modern day robber barons who are making a fortune off the backs of the disenfranchised working and middle class—among them Donald Trump and his inner circle Two years before the housing market collapsed in Donald Trump looked forward to a crash “I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy” he said But our future president wasn’t alone While millions of Americans suffered financial loss tycoons pounced to heartlessly seize thousands of homes—their profiteering made even easier because as prize winning investigative reporter Aaron Glantz reveals in Homewreckers they often used taxpayer money—and the Obama administration’s promise to cover their lossesIn Homewreckers Glantz recounts the transformation of straightforward lending into a morass of slivered and combined mortgage “products” that could be bought and sold accompanied by a shift in priorities and a loosening of regulations and laws that made it good business to lend money to those who wouldn’t be able to repay Among the men who laughed their way to the bank Trump cabinet members Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross Trump pal and confidant Tom Barrack and billionaire Republican cash cow Steve Schwarzman Homewreckers also brilliantly weaves together the stories of those most ravaged by the housing crisis The result is an eye opening expose of the greed that decimated millions and enriched a gluttonous few.
