The Money Culture

The Money Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Money Culture takes us on an uproarious ride through the most outrageous and turbulent era in the financial markets since the crash of '29.

Michael Lewis, whose Liar's Poker foreshadowed events at Salomon Brothers, instructs us in the moral codes of Donald Trump, Leona Helmsley, Ivan Boesky and sundry luminaries. He conducts a tour through the 1980s world of high finance in chapters like "When Bad Things Happen to Rich People," "Why You Should Leave Home Without It: The Growing Absurdity of the American Express Card" and "The Difference Between Milken's Morals and Ours." It is a trip we are not soon to forget.

Review:

"One of those rare works that encapsulate and define an era." Fortune
