The financial crisis of 2008 was the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression of 1929. During the subsequent Great Recession housing prices fell 31.8 percent and, even 2 years after the recession ended, unemployment was still above 9 percent. The financial crisis of 2008 changed the course of history. Unfortunately, as most know, history repeats. So now, here in early 2018, as the DOW continues to set new record closing highs, are we on the brink of another financial disaster?
After 30 years as a leading Wall Street trading consultant (Merill Lynch, Solomon Brothers, Citibank, Chase), Robert Levey brings his unique perspective on those who make the stock market tick through his engaging novel, Risk: A Tale of Wall Street. Levey’s book documents the sweeping epic of financial madness and greed in a game played with infinitely high stakes from the perspective of a young woman turned international powerhouse.
Kirkus Reviews calls Risk “a thoughtful and well-crafted look at the human stakes in high finance.” Levey’s book reveals how everything written about the recent mortgage crisis is about what did happen, but this is the story of what could happen.
From Wall Street to Paris and beyond, Risk is a sweeping epic of financial madness and greed in a game played with infinitely high stakes. More than a by-the-numbers exposé, it deals in lively detail with those who risk their careers, their treasure, and sometimes their very lives on the decisions they make.
As an insider on Wall Street for 30 years, Robert Levey brings his unique perspective on the thoughts and actions of the market makers.
