To find out what went so badly wrong, Evan returns to first principles, and explains exactly how a bank is supposed to work and what happened when banks abandoned their traditional role.

Evan traces the rise and fall of two banks whose collapse symbolises the wider catastrophe - Northern Rock and Lehman Brothers. Just why did the UK experience its first run on a high street bank since the mid 19th century? And what prompted a giant of Wall Street to collapse in the biggest bankruptcy in history?
