—Davies, Dan.
3 available of 4 items

Veteran regulatory economist and market analyst Dan Davies tells the story of fraud through a genealogy of financial malfeasance, including: the Great Salad Oil swindle, the fictional British colony of Poyais in South America, the Boston Ladies' Deposit Company, and the Bre-X scam. Davies brings new insights into these schemes and shows how all frauds, current and historical, belong to one of four categories and operate on the same basic principles. The only elements that change are the victims, the scammers, and the terminology. Print run 50,000.
