It was amazing to learn that there were three camps in which all banking elite came from:
--Morgan (JP Morgan)
Individuals (if you could call them that) were either a Rockefeller, Morgan, or Loeb person on how they went about doing business.
I always knew that members of government were connected, but never at this level.
In addition, this book goes on to show how these business elite's positioned the government for war because they knew that it would be "good for business".
I would definitely recommend this book, but watch out, this read may increase your anger level.
