Written by a man with inside knowledge of all the major players, this is the story of how the economic crisis continues to haunt us, and why the unchecked recklessness of some banks is still a threat to our financial future. Written by an award-winning financial journalist, Bad Banks is an unflinching and gripping account of the problems and scandals that continue to bedevil the world's banking system some five years after the credit crunch. It follows the fortunes and misfortunes of individual banks, from RBS to Lloyds. It exposes instances of misselling, money laundering, interest rate fixing and incompetence. And it considers the bigger picture: how the failings of the world's banking system are threatening to undermine our future economic security. Alex Brummer, the City Editor of the Daily Mail, has spoken to all the major players, from HBOS' Andy Hornby, to former Governor of the Bank of England Sir Mervyn King, to the ex-Greek permier Lucas Papademos. His book is an insightful - and terrifying - account of institutions once renowned for their probity, now all too often a byword for incompetence, and worse.
