Publisher's Summary

What passes for investing today is, in fact, gambling: the notion of making money quickly and without effort...and that's just how Wall Street likes it. By charting the development of the modern financial system from its roots in the madness of the first bubbles and Roaring '80s, this book will cast a light on the chicanery of the big banks and hedge funds - and give you the information you need to make the right choices for your own investing future. Covering the basics of investment bubbles, various kinds of financial scams, and the peculiarities of our financial-political complex, Modern Investing is an indispensable guide to the predators of the jungle of investing.
