The Fortune Tellers
Inside Wall Street's Game of Money, Media, and ManipulationBook - 2001
Just as "spin" has taken over politics in America, so too has it come to define the long-term bull market on Wall Street. The booming trade in stocks, which has become a national obsession, has produced an insatiable demand for financial intelligence -- and plenty of highly paid players eager to supply it. But who among the fortune tellers can investors really trust? Kurtz provides an indispensable guide with this eye-opening account of an unseen world, based on eighteen months of shadowing the most influential, colorful, and egotistical people in business and journalism.
