In the not too distant past, money was simple: You might have had a bank account and a mortgage, perhaps some basic investments. That all started to change in the 1980s, as our financial systems moved beyond the understanding of the general public while working against us, seemingly controlled by no one. Drawing on his extensive background in finance and technology, Christopher Varelas journeys from the crime-ridden L.A. jewelry district to the cutthroat Salomon Brothers trading floor, capturing the key deals and players that made the financial world what it is today. An enlightening take on how we reached this point, Varelas's book also makes the case that Wall Street needs to be saved, if only to save ourselves.
