It is the beginning of 2008 and Wall-Street is engulfed in a storm of panic and fear. With the initiation of the collapse of the subprime mortgage market occurring months prior, the extent to which the American economy--and, thereby, the world’s financial base--was bound to these securities is only now beginning to be understood. Despite these present issues, however, the worst is yet to come. Like a disease, the failure of the US housing market has begun to spread to the pillars of global financial institutions. With every second drawing the world’s economy to the brink of disaster, US lawmakers and financial experts of both parties meet in Washington to discuss how to prevent the worst economic event of modern history. They, however, cannot do it alone. Alongside these public officials, the CEOs of massive, American-based banks will be central to decision making as any solution requires their compliance. Representing the members of this strange, dysfunctional collection of characters, delegates will be forced to find solutions to stabilize and rebuild the American economy while simultaneously pursuing their own diverging interests. It was once said that, when the music is playing, you have the dance. Now that the music has stopped, will it ever begin again?
