The Money Culture
While Michael Lewis worked as a bond dealer at Salomon Brothers he began his second career as a journalist and helped to record a real-life 'bonfire of the vanities'. Not afraid of interviewing the world's most notorious financiers or of revealing the treachery and deception behind some of the biggest financial deals ever made, in The Money Culture, Lewis provides a contemporary record of the ups and downs of the world's money markets and the rise and fall of some of the larger-than-life personalities.
A modern resissue of a bestselling classic, by the author of Liar's Poker and Pacific Rift.
