We all played in Wall Street's Casino, whether we liked it or not. Some people got to make the rules. Others were turned into chips. In the end, almost everybody lost, and we are left to pay the $12 trillion tab. Baring the truth behind the numbers on Wall Street trading screens, joining real people fighting for their homes, this is the story of the greatest financial meltdown in history  what happened and why. "American Casino is a powerful and shocking look at the subprime lending scandal.
