Nomi Prins: All the President’s Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power
The relationship between Washington and Wall Street isn’t really a revolving door. It’s a merry-go-round. As Prins shows, the merriest of all are the bankers and financiers that get rich off the relationship, using their public offices and access to build private wealth and power. Nomi Prins follows the money. She used to work on Wall Street. And now she has written a seminal history of America’s bankers and their symbiotic relationship with all the presidents from Teddy Roosevelt through Barack Obama. Prins is a born story-teller. She turns the history of the moneyed class into a breathless romance—the tawdry affairs of bankers and the presidents who love them.
