Book Summary:

“A riveting account that reaches beyond the market landscape to say something universal about risk and triumph, about hubris and failure.”—The New York Times NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUSINESSWEEK In this business classic—now with a new Afterword in which the author draws parallels to the recent financial crisis—Roger Lowenstein captures the gripping roller-coaster ride of Long-Term Capital Management. Drawing on confidential internal memos and interviews with dozens of key players, Lowenstein explains not just how the fund made and lost its money but also how the personalities of Long-Term’s partners, the arrogance of their mathematical certainties, and the culture of Wall Street itself contributed to both their rise and their fall. When it was founded in 1993, Long-Term was hailed as the most impressive hedge fund in history. But after four years in which the firm dazzled Wall Street as a $100 billion moneymaking juggernaut, it suddenly suffered catastrophic losses that jeopardized not only the biggest banks on Wall Street but the stability of the financial system itself. The dramatic story of Long-Term’s fall is now a chilling harbinger of the crisis that would strike all of Wall Street, from Lehman Brothers to AIG, a decade later. In his new Afterword, Lowenstein shows that LTCM’s implosion should be seen not as a one-off drama but as a template for market meltdowns in an age of instability—and as a wake-up call that Wall Street and government alike tragically ignored. Praise for When Genius Failed “[Roger] Lowenstein has written a squalid and fascinating tale of world-class greed and, above all, hubris.”—BusinessWeek “Compelling . . . The fund was long cloaked in secrecy, making the story of its rise . . . and its ultimate destruction that much more fascinating.”—The Washington Post “Story-telling journalism at its best.”—The Economist

Book Summary:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The secret of Eckstein’s business was to ride your losses until they turned into gains. He would buy the futures, sell the bills, and wait for the two prices to converge. But instead of converging, the gap widened even further. #2 Meriwether’s life’s work was to understand and trade financial futures. He had grown up in a Democratic, Irish Catholic stronghold of Mayor Richard Daley in Chicago. He knew virtually everyone in the area, a self-contained world that revolved around the basketball lot, soda shop, and parish. #3 Meriwether’s escape from Rosemoor was by means of a singular passion: golf. He was a standout member of the Mendel school team and twice won the Chicago Suburban Catholic League golf tournament. He also caddied at the Flossmoor Country Club, which involved a significant train or bus ride south of the city. #4 Until the mid-1960s, bond trading had been a dull sport. But in the late 1960s, the epidemic of inflation destroyed the world of fixed relationships. By the end of the 1970s, firms such as Salomon were slicing and dicing bonds in ways that Homer had never dreamed of.

Book Summary:

Founded by John Meriweather, a notoriously confident bond dealer, along with two Nobel prize winners and a floor of Wall Street's brightest and best, long-term capital management was from the beginning hailed as a new gold standard in investing. It was to be the hedge fund to end all other hedge funds: a discreet private investment club limited to those rich enough to pony up millions.

Book Summary:

Structured to Fail is a fact-based novel that examines the Eurodollar, Hedge Funds, and subprime financial disasters that led to the evaporation of $23 trillion in global wealth between 2006 and 2014, far exceeding the losses of the Great Depression. The subprime fiasco alone tanked the U.S. housing market, stock market and ultimately the global economy. Many believe that these dramatic events resulted from a banking conspiracy. In fact, it was a conspiracy of ignorance, stupidity, greed, and hubris at the highest levels of banks and governments. Wesley Stanton is a man on a mission. He predicted all three financial debacles and worked tirelessly to contain them and keep the American and world economy intact. Through him, you’ll learn about the inner workings of major corporations, banks, governments, and the Federal Reserve Bank in the face of the largest financial collapses in history. "Structured to Fail" is both a primer on financial management and a treasure trove of case studies for how investment banking should and should not be managed.

Book Summary:

As part of the notorious MIT Team depicted in Ben Mezrich's now classic Bringing Down the House, Jeff Ma used math and statistics to master the game of blackjack and reap handsome rewards at casinos. Years later, Ma has inspired not only a bestselling novel and hit movie, but has also started three different companies—the latest of which, Citizen Sports, is an innovative marriage of sports, betting, and digital technology—and launched a successful corporate speaking career. The House Advantage reveals Ma's cutting-edge mathematical insights into the world of statistics and makes them applicable to a wide business audience. He argues that numbers are the key to analyzing nearly everything in the world of business, from how to spot and profit from global market inefficiencies to having multiple backup plans in anticipation of every probability. Ma's stories and business lessons are as intriguing as they are universally applicable.

Book Summary:

As a little one, hearing JFK speak for the first time made me want to be just like him. For some reason, his words went straight to my heart, filling my heart with something wonderful. It is a feeling that I later came to understand as a desire to serve—to pursue a life of public service. My desire was for this ideal. These feelings have taken me on a long and tortuous journey. I have been a public servant most of my life. I have gone from a poor little black child, laborer, contractor, and teacher, to politician, lawyer, and judge. But strangely enough, my journey did not end there. My journey did not end with political success. Strangely enough, I discovered that my desire and my ideal meant something deeper and even more wonderful. I discovered that it meant something above and beyond politics—something for everyone. I discovered something good for every single person: the ideal life, a life of true purpose. Not something for the far-distant future, but something that can be achieved in the here and now. And I want to share my experiences of this process (the Tao) with you.
