Wall Street People: True Stories of Today

Description

The first complete Who's Who in the history of the world's best-known financial street
Charles D. Ellis and James R. Vertin have crafted a window on Wall Street that investors won't want to miss. These two Wall Street insiders provide detailed profiles of dozens of the most fascinating, influential, and talked-about financial luminaries ever to light up the dark and cavernous purlieus of the world's most famous street. Related here are intriguing tales of money won and lost, amazing coups, brazen cons of financial brilliance, and untrammeled greed and blind ambition. This compelling series includes profiles of the biggest names today: Alan Greenspan, Warren Buffett, Larry Tisch, Jim Rogers, Sanford Weill, and George Soros-as well as investment losers like Ivan Boesky and Nicholas Leeson.
Charles D. Ellis (Greenwich, CT) is a Managing Partner of Greenwich Associates, the international financial consulting firm. Now fully retired, James R. Vertin (Menlo Park, CA) was a principal of Alpine Counselors, a financial consulting firm.
