So many of us are living outdoors now. Thousands of our homes were stolen. How did this happen? Aaron Glantz knows. A former KPFA reporter whos won a Peabody Award, been a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and written The War Comes Home.  Aaron not only knows but tells the entire sordid business in his new book, Homewreckers, How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, & Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes & Demolished the American Dream.

Aaron exposes the high class rip-offs - among them, D.Trump and cronies, who often used taxpayer money to make fortunes off the working class and the middle class. Homewreckers!  shows us the mad greed that harmed or ruined millions of us while further fattening the gluttonous few. 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 wouldnt 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.

Aaron Glantz is a senior reporter at Reveal who produces public interest journalism with impact. His reporting has sparked more than a dozen Congressional hearings, a raft of federal
legislation and led to criminal probes by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission. He is also the author of three booksincluding The War Comes Home: Washingtons Battle Against Americas Veterans.  His work has appeared in a broad range of media outlets, including The New York Times, NBC News, ABC News and the PBS NewsHour, where his work has twice been nominated for a national Emmy Award. Hes been given a Peabody Award, an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award and Online News Association award.
