Liar’s Poker

Liar’s Poker is Michael Lewis insider’s description of what working on Wall Street in the 80s was like. From Princeton University to Salomon Brothers, Lewis and others like him earned their fortune over a very short time span at the age of 24. Using vivid language, Lewis makes readers feel as if they had been bond traders themselves on the trading floor of Salomon Brothers, taking a proactive part in turning America into a debt-ridden high-consumption and low-savings economy while generating revenues for Salomon Brothers and its employees.

Readers will see the market changes as the macroeconomic factors evolve and experience the lives of the Wall Street bankers, in particular, bond traders in the 80s, who are driven by greed and ambition and rewarded by their skills to mislead others.
