Product description

Review

'A must-read thriller for anyone who works, or invests in markets. It is a story of how arrogance can drive greed and fear to extremes.' Scotsman

'Richly textured and lucid…A riveting account that reaches beyond the market landscape to say something universal about risk and triumph, about hubris and failure.' New York Times

'Lowenstein has written a squalid and fascinating tale of world-class greed and, above all, hubris.' Business Week

'This book is story-telling journalism at its best' The Economist

Synopsis

This title tells the story of long-term capital management where a group of elite investors believe they can beat the market and, like alchemists, create limitless wealth for themselves and their partners. In fact, they create a trillion-dollar hole in the international banking system.
