If you want to understand the financial crisis…
May 22, 2009
If you want to understand why we are in the mess we are in, you can do worse than read or listen to Gillian Tett.
Gillian studied Social Anthropology at Cambridge and then went into journalism with the Financial Times. Most books on finance are pretty dull affairs, but her book Fool’s Gold, which tells the story of the derrivatives team at J.P. Morgan reads like a thriller.
You can get a sampling of her intellect and storytelling abilities by listening to a lecture she gave recently at the London School of Economics.
