5.0 out of 5 stars A Feast of a Book, June 17, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Bull Run: Wall Street, the Democrats, and the New Politics of Personal Finance (Hardcover)
No Bull. Anyone with even a passing interest in national politics will find this book invaluable. The author, clearly a Jack of many trades, brings a wealth of evidence to show a shift in the political landscape that may well affect the outcome of the next election and certainly clarifies positions taken by each party. The stories, facts and humor made it eminently readable.

5.0 out of 5 stars informative and amusing, April 14, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Bull Run: Wall Street, the Democrats, and the New Politics of Personal Finance (Hardcover)
This book was a quick read and explained in an entertaining manner with wit and stories about the public policy issues and players in today's economy. There was a laugh a paragraph and it was a quick read. I enjoyed the characterization of his parents as academics who accrued wealth through TIAA-CREF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, invaluable reading for do-it-yourself investors, August 6, 2000
This review is from: Bull Run: Wall Street, the Democrats, and the New Politics of Personal Finance (Hardcover)
There have been major shifts and changes in the American financial world over the past two decades driven by the aging baby boom generation, the Internet and computerized day trading, global economic crises, and the "democratization" of the stock and markets. In Bull Run: Wall Street, The Democrats, And The New Politics Of Personal Finance, Daniel Gross examines how the changes in attitudes and policies of the Democratic party under the influence of the Clinton administration has led to an unprecedented period of sustained stability and growth in the American financial community, the rapidly increasing percentage of Americans owning stocks and mutual funds, with the result that today a majority of citizens have a personal stake in public equity and debt markets. Gross offers provocative opinions backed with true-life stories illustrating the new relationship and interdependence of politics and finance, Wall Street, Main Street, and Washington. Bull Run is highly recommended, informative reading for do-it-yourself investors seeking to understand American financial markets -- and what the on-coming decade might bring.
