Описание: How One Small Bank Created a Trillion-Dollar Hole When Genius Failed is the extraordinary final instalment in a financial saga that began with the gambling on the futures markets in the 1980s. It is the conclusion of the poker players so memorably depicted in Liar's Poker and, fictionally, in Bonfire of the Vanities. By 1994 John Meriweather, the pivotal figure on the trading floor at Salomon Brothers during the 1980s when the firm had made $500 million annual profits in arbitrage alone, was out of work. To fill his time, he created a financial institution as much a product of the era of the 1990s as the futures floors had been in the 1980s: a hedge fund, named Long-Term Capital Management. Meriweather took to LTCM the brightest of his disciples from Salomon and added Nobel prize-winning economics from Harvard. The team believed that it could outsmart the markets in a strategy of hedge betting, leveraged to levels previously unseen. Even a small percentage profit could be turned into a huge financial gain if the stake placed was big enough. So LTCM bet big, very big. Hedge funds are the equivalent of private clubs on Pall Mall or exclusive Oxbridge colleges: you have to be invited to join. And you have to be extremely rich. LTCM's partners quickly included every bank on Wall Street and many of Europe's premier banks asll. They built up a fund of $100 billion. Which meant that they could really put some money down. And they made spectacular profits for a while. Until the pressure to keep achieving led to increasingly risky speculations and less protected gambles. When the markets in Brazil, Indonesia and Russia all crashed within months of each other it was as if a wrecking ball had ploughed through LTCM. But because they had continued to leverage their investments at very high multiples the effect was shared throughout the world's banks. When LTCM went down it threatened to open up a trillion-dollar black hole, a financial abyss that could have busted a continent and an entire banking system. In a classic tale of greed, ambition, pride and overbearing confidence in their ability to beat the market, Meriweather's poker players play out their last hand. A parable of extraordinary drama, it is also a brilliant morality story of our times and a vivid warning of capitalism's ability to consume its own.

Описание: With a new Afterword addressing today's financial crisis A BUSINESS WEEK BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR 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.

Описание: The retirement crisis facing America-and the road map for a way out-from The New York Times bestselling author of Origins of the Crash In the last several decades, corporations and local governments made ruinous pension and healthcare promises to American workers. With these now coming due, they threaten to destroy twenty-first- century America's hopes for a comfortable retirement. With his trademark narrative panache, bestselling author Roger Lowenstein analyzes three fascinating case studies-General Motors, the New York City subway system, and the city of San Diego-each an object lesson and a compelling historical saga that illuminates how the pension crisis developed. Cumulative retirement deficits are approaching $1 trillion, and Lowenstein warns that these are only the first. Retirement pensions will continue to be a critical issue as the country ages, and While America Aged is the urgent call to action and prescription for reform.
