Greed Was Grand,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Barbarians At The Gate (Paperback)
This is an excellent narration of the attempt for what is now known as a leveraged buyout in the 1980's. In itself it is a fascinating tale. As an illustration of how greedy bankers are and how little value they add to society it is superb. As ever, senior management chase their own rewards and the rest of the workforce can but sit and watch. Rarely has so much been earned for so little value.
The book now has the benefit of a an afterword that tracks the main characters over the subsequent 20 years. Truly fascinating!
