REVIEW: Greed without borders reveals the cynick world of investment banks

Anne T. is the pseudonym of a bank investment, which has dedicated seven years to trading on the capital markets. In his book Greed without Borders, he offers a possible answer to the question of who caused the banking crisis: they were voracious financiers.

As a specialization, Anne T. chose to trade in derivatives. That is, with highly speculative securities derived from basic products such as stocks, currencies or commodities.

After a short excursion to children and study, Anna begins to bleed the daily (and non) life of Frankfurt derivatives mg. And in those moments he’s the funniest.

Greed is worth it because of the “biography” of the investment bank. How brokei is related to sex, I know what to drink, what to spend, how to dress, what you think about clients and partners, what to do for rewards – that’s what Anne T. pitaliv is all about.

Moreover, in these passages, I do not particularly consider the fact that Anne T. is not a born writer. On the contrary, what comes to the surface when describing individual stock exchange transactions.

Of course, derivatives are already sloit in principle, after all, their risks were hidden in their opacity. It is obvious, however, that even when the author’s text has been enriched by an editorial note, everything is suddenly quite clear.

For this book, it is not necessary to understand exactly how the zero-coupon bond and the cash option with these indicators worked. Therefore, the freeze is somewhat unexplained by the fates of the individual characters, especially Anna T. herself, who, after 180 pages of the world in general, suddenly, without any detailed details, simply says that she no longer wanted to.

What a little code. Because Greed without borders shows that attractive stories, characters and destinies can be found even at first glance from the world of stock market monitors, ethnic books and mathematical models.
