Synopsis

In the wake of global financial crisis, the people, firms and businesses driving our modern economy have changed. While elite fields of business and finance now play a dominant role in the global economy, how they work remains a mystery to most outsiders. Still, terms like hedge funds and private equity, once rarely discussed in mainstream media, have now reached full-scale public prominence. Money Makers reveals the selective and secretive industries of the private sector that drive the modern economy from the perspective of leaders in each field. Throughout the book, David Snider and Dr. Chris Howard rely on insights gleaned from interviews with top executives in six industries: private equity, hedge funds, management consulting, investment banking, management of Fortune 500 companies, and venture capital. Exploring the histories, firms, people, and mechanics of modern finance, Money Makers is an accessible guide for those looking to make sense of the financial world.
