Author: Jorge Volpi.
On 17 September 2008, two days after Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy being announced, J. Volpi, one of the most respected financial genius and patron of the opera in New York, stormed out of his office at JV Capital Management. That same day, authorities accused him of embezzling fifteen thousand million dollars, a considerably lower number than Bernard Madoff’s sixty five thousand million, but high enough to get a reputation as one more big financial criminal of our time.
From one deception to another, this singular book guides us from the pillow talk secrets of Wall Street to the group of Soviet agents that hatched modern capitalism in a frightening catalogue of the duplicities living in the human being’s heart.
