Summary Of Vicky Ward S The Devil S Casino

Everest Media, Everest Media LLC

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 On June 7, 2008, George Herbert Walker, a 39-year-old second cousin of then President George W. Bush, and head of Lehman's Investment Management division, was celebrating his marriage to Nancy Dorn, a 31-year-old hedge fund analyst from Texas. The couple had exchanged their vows at New York's City Hall a few weeks earlier. #2 The party was held to celebrate the wedding of George Walker and Nancy Dorn. It was clear that most of the executives at the party were stressed about the company's financial situation. #3 Lehman was founded in 1850 by three cotton trader brothers. The firm expanded after World War II, and under the reign of Bobbie Lehman, who had a Rolodex bursting with names like Whitney, Harriman, and most of the rest of New York's ruling class, it became the gentleman's banking house. #4 After Lehman, the reputation of the firm was still intact. The partners were all rich. In 2007, Fuld was named CEO of the Year by Institutional Investor magazine in the Brokers and Asset Managers category.

All The Devils Are Here

Bethany McLean Penguin UK

According to Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera, two of America's most acclaimed business journalists, no-one has put all the pieces of the financial crisis together. The finger was pointed at greedy traders, cowardly legislators and clueless home buyers, but many devils helped bring hell to the economy. All The Devils Are Here goes back several decades to explore the motivations of everyone from CEOs and politicians to anonymous lenders, borrowers and Wall Street traders. It exposes the hidden role of companies including AIG and Goldman Sachs. It delves into the powerful mythology of homeownership. And it proves that the crisis ultimately wasn't about finance at all; it was about human nature. Bethany McLean's The Smartest Guys in the Room was the best Enron book on a crowded shelf. All the Devils Are Here will be remembered for finally making sense of the meltdown.

The Devils Place

Elena MacKenzie BoD – Books on Demand

Vierzehn Tage ihres Lebens für ihre Freiheit. Camden McAdams ist ein guter Geschäftsmann, er hat dem The Devils Place in Las Vegas zu neuem Glanz verholfen, aber mit Frauen kann er nicht so gut umgehen. Er ist es gewohnt, zu bekommen, was er will. Als er Mary Preston beim Falschspiel in seinem Casino erwischt, bietet er ihr einen Handel an. Sie soll vierzehn Tage ihm gehören, danach ist sie frei. Mary lässt sich darauf ein, denn sie braucht dringend Geld, um die Farm ihrer Eltern retten zu können. Schon bald steckt Camden knietief in Ärger. Obwohl er sich klar über die Regeln ihres Arrangements ausgedrückt hatte, macht Mary trotzdem, was sie will. Und gerade jetzt, wo er mit Mary kämpft und mitten in den Vorbereitungen zum Rodeo steckt, taucht seine Ex-Frau in Las Vegas auf. Und mit ihr bricht eine Vergangenheit über ihn herein, von der er glaubte, sie längst hinter sich gelassen zu haben. Mary versucht wirklich, Camden alles recht zu machen, aber manchmal gehen seine Wünsche einfach zu weit. Er vergisst viel zu oft, dass sie nicht sein Eigentum ist. Und obwohl sie sich immer wieder vornimmt, das klarzustellen, schafft er es, sie ihren Ärger über ihn vergessen zu lassen.
