In the interests of full disclosure, I am a conservative tea bagger Republican. I have never voted for a democrat and probably never will.
This informative book details how large Wall Street firms like Goldman, Bear Sterns, et. al. have turned away from financing businesses and have exclusively underwritten debts of several governments. That is a rather devastating realization. As a republican, I defend business - even big business like Wall Street. Gasparino's testimony is very damning. He impeaches some of the myths about the Clinton prosperity as well. It tells a different story than that propagandist HBO mini-series Too Big Too Fail.
It is not an enjoyable book the way that listening to the Olympics is, but it is a necessary book and yes I would recommend it.
informative, jaundiced, and still incomplete
You find out how spineless Ike was at times.
No. You have to take it in bites
I like Greene as an author. I just felt this book didn't have much to say and the plot was confused
Greene is dead - Rest in peace. There is very little he can do now to make this book more enjoyable.
This story needed a more youthful and compelling narrator
Read Stambol Train instead
