'The Devil's Half Mile:' Murder-mystery based on America's first financial crisis

Hosted by

It’s been a decade since the 2008 financial crisis, but many are still feeling the effects. Financial journalist Paddy Hirsch understands how the market imploded back then better than most. In 2007, he started working as for public radio’s business show Marketplace. Now he’s out with a new novel based on the nation’s very first financial meltdown. It happened in New York in 1792, and it gave rise to Wall Street.
