• Business Insider

The National Archives did a document dump on Friday, releasing transcripts, meeting agendas, and confidentiality agreements from the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

The group was set up in the aftermath of the crisis by Congress to look into the causes of the event, and the documents are a gold mine of information.

There are interviews with Warren Buffett, Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein and AIG Financial Products chief Joe Cassano. 

Included among them are interviews with some of the real-life Wall Streeters from Michael Lewis book "The Big Short."
