To begin,I want to congratulate Bruce Livesey for his courage to write this book, exposing the malfeasance of the most powerful strata of our society. The book is an easy read owing to the articulate writing style of the author. The reading becomes more difficult when one begins to comprehend the nefarious ways by which many top bankers and corporate captains seek to satisfy their enormous drives of greed and power drunkenness. Their transgressions are detrimental to individuals and economies worldwide. Regretfully the power of these self-portective cliques, as well as subservient governments and regulators, keep them immune to lawful constraints. The book is a must read for anyone who currently invests or contemplates to do so in the future. It slso should be compulsory reading for financial advisors. Perhaps this expose might guide them to the path of intregrity.
The books illustrates, in a number of different areas, the consistant weaknesses in the regulation of Canada's financial markets. I originally borrowed this book from the library and read it, however, it was so relevent that i subsequently purchased the book to keep in my collection of financial books.( I am a financial advisor)
