Portrait of the Secretive Financial World,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Selling America Short: The SEC and Market Contrarians in the Age of Absurdity (Hardcover)
This is a must-read for every business school student, professor and investor, as well as anyone interested in the world-wide financial industry and our government's attempts to regulate and police that industry. Mr. Sauer provides us with an upclose view of the financial markets in American and around the globe over the past 20 years. He is insightful and funny in his presentation of how the government regulators respond to illegal schemes. At times the book is hilarious and at other times you will be on the edge of your seat reading about the back-room, cloak and dagger story of recent financial frauds. Mr. Sauer tells you the personal, real story behind the headlines as he vividly presents the individual personalities involved in our country's recent financial history. If you want to know how things really work in financial world, this is the book for you.
