All the Presidents' Bankers
Nomi Prins
Nation Books
04/08/2014
Based on original archival presidential correspondence, All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power exposes a century of secret relationships and interdependence between America's past 19 presidents (from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama) and key bankers (from J.P. Morgan to Jamie Dimon.) It explores the shocking ways in which the same people, through blood, mentorship and other symbiotic collaborations impacted American domestic and foreign policy, and shaped the nation's status as a super-power. The book spans the establishment of the Federal Reserve, two world wars, the Cold War, Vietnam, Iran hostage crisis, and all the international economic crises from the Panic of 1907 through today. It divulges the historical alignment of the White House and Wall Street, and presents a haunting examination of America's geneology of power.
