The Barbarians of Wealth
January 24, 2011
Hosted by Jordan Goodman
Today we speak with Sara Nunnally about Barbarians of Wealth, that she co-authored with Sandy Franks. It examines how the greedy, self-serving decisions of a select group of politicians and financial institutions negatively impact the economy and destroy America's prosperity and the American way of life. Sara will detail how Goldman Sachs peddled mortgage-backed securities up and down Wall Street while secretly betting upon their demise. We will discuss how Sanford Weill, founder of Citigroup, spent $100 million lobbying for the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, which prevented the merger of commercial and investment banks, and got his way. Sara will offer up examples of other modern barbarians, including the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, Hank Paulson and Timothy Geithner. Barbarians of Wealth is a timely must read for hardworking Americans concerned with their prosperity, and those fascinated with the inner workings of Washington and Wall Street. www.barbariansofwealth.com
