I actually missed the 4-year anniversary which was on September 25th. It's hard to believe it has already been 4 years since the nation's largest bank failure. Two years ago I did this blog post which looked back at Washington Mutual's closure from a depositor point-of-view.
We may learn more about the decisions to close WaMu in Sheila Bair's new book, "Bull by the Horns".
Last month I reported on a Q&A with WSJ reporter Kirsten Grind who wrote about WaMu's failure in the book “The Lost Bank”.
