Book Description

Sept. 16 2012
Bernard Baruch was a self-made millionaire, legendary stock trader, and venture investor. For most of the first half of the 20th century, he epitomized the “good side” of Wall Street in the public mind.  Celebrated as “Adviser to Presidents” and “The Park Bench Statesman,” he also became known as “The Man Who Sold out before the Crash.”  James Grant’s much praised biography draws on a wealth of previously untapped material.

By TAF - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book provides one excellent coverage of US and stock market history during the active time of Bernard Baruch (approximately 1890 - 1960) and how he was able to deal with the changing political winds of his lifetime and still stay wealthy enough to live independently and as he wished.
