Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World
Doubleday, 2011 - 658 strán (strany)
In this book, the author tries to investigate another way of viewing Goldman Sachs, in his opinion - a secretive money-making machine that has straddled the line between conflict-of-interest and legitimate deal-making for decades; a firm that has exerted undue influence over government since the early part of the 20th century; a Wall Street titan whose clever bet against the 2007 mortgage market may have made the financial ruin of the Great Recession even worse. By reading thousands of pages of government documents, court cases, SEC filings, Freedom of Information Act papers and other sources, and conducting over 100 interviews, including clients, competitors, regulators, current and former Goldman employees (including the six living men who have run Goldman), Cohan has constructed a narrative that tries to look beyond the veil of secrecy to reveal the sucess of Goldman Sachs.
