    Book details

Money as a weapon. Money as revenge. Money as a substitute for sex and love. Money as status. This travel book explores the uses of money and the attitudes of the wheelers and dealers in the international marketplace. Douglas Kennedy spent a year loitering with intent in six very disparate financial realms, including the Casablanca bourse (where stocks and bonds are listed on a blackboard), the squeaky-clean Singapore money markets, the Sydney futures market and the first Hungarian stock exchange to open since 1948. From the "New Age" City folk in London, unsure whether greed really is good for you, to the tireless toilers of Wall Street, Kennedy's encounters with money-makers around the globe offer a quirky journey through the modern cash nexus.

Douglas Kennedy is the author of THE BIG PICTURE, THE DEAD HEART (now being filmed by the makers of PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT) THE JOB and two travel books, BEYOND THE PYRAMIDS, IN GOD'S COUNTRY. Born in New York City in 1955, he lives in London with his wife and two children.

    The book was written in 1992 and shows that nothing changed since then. Well written and witty. Nice multicultural portraits.
