During the violent financial disruptions of recent years, three men have stood out as beacons of judgment and wisdom: Warren Buffett, George Soros and Paul Volcker.
Buffett is renowned as a canny stock-market investor, Soros as an astute reader of shifting global tides, and Volcker as a regulator and policy-maker. Each has more than fifty years of deep involvement in the markets, and all are sceptical of Wall Street frenzies. They have seen too many cycles of boom and bust to trust blindly in free-market dogmatism.
With the benefit of his own deep understanding of financial markets, and drawing on his interviews with Buffett, Soros and Volcker, Charles R. Morris brilliantly analyses the careers of these three men. He distils their wisdom and experience, and shows how their insights can help us to navigate the treacherous financial terrain ahead.
