Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) has been doing some heavy reading lately.
At a press conference Wednesday on financial reform, Hatch recounted the several books he's read recently on the financial crisis, offering specific praise for each.
But those aren't the only
tomes Hatch has been studying.
"If you read that book, 'On the Brink,' you realize that they just went from one financial crisis to another," he said of the Treasury Department's scramble as the financial panic hit. "They didn't know what to do. They had to work by the seat of their pants. It was amazing what they were able to do through all of those various impending crises that really could have put our country right down."
He continued: "Frankly, it was an extremely interesting book for me to read, as were the others, as is too big to fail. too big to fail is a litlte bit like a novel it's just that interesting.
