Twenty-five people at the heart of the meltdown ...

"The American public
There's no escaping the fact: politicians might have teed up the financial system and failed to police it properly and Wall Street's greedy bankers might have got carried away with the riches they could generate, but if millions of Americans had just realised they were borrowing more than they could repay then we would not be in this mess. The British public got just as carried away. We are the credit junkies of Europe and many of our problems could easily have been avoided if we had been more sensible and just said no."

I'm a little surprised that Timothy Geithner isn't in that list.

You are correct. There are a lot of others who should be on the list. I will see if I can find an old article I wrote and filed away somewhere I have trouble finding. So much for my filing skills. Thanks for the heads up. I copied this list from the article cited.
