Descripción del producto

With Trillions On the Table, Nobody Plays Fair, and Everyone Plays For Keeps

The New Robber Barons, is an anthology of Janet Tavakli’s original chiefly web-based articles from the September 2008 financial crisis through February 2012. The original commentaries are unrevised so that readers experience the real-time thought process. Some background was repeated in commentaries so that they could read as stand-alone articles as events unfolded.

The eBook is for readers who do not wish to sift through web content, and who do not wish to read in print format, both of which are alternative options.

The New Robber Barons’ articles pick up where her previous book, Dear Mr. Buffett, ended. Tavakoli serves up example after stunning international example of no-strings-attached socialization of losses and privatization of gains. She exposes the criminogenic environment that enabled international oligarchs to solidify power.

Tavakoli’s conclusions were eventually confirmed by Congressional investigations.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Compendium Worth Having -- And Reading 20 de febrero de 2012
Por K. Denninger - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
Janet is one of the few ACTUAL subject matter experts in the field of structured finance -- you know, mortgage-backed securities, complex slice-and-dice things like CDOs and credit default instruments -- that has been sounding the siren on the fraud in our financial system since the collapse began.

She's right, incidentally. The mathematics of this is really simple, if you think about it. Nobody will buy used dog food if you tell them honestly what you're selling. So in order to manage to blow a credit bubble, someone -- or lots of someones -- have to lie.

That's at the root of what happened in the 2007-2009 meltdown, and we've fixed none of it. Instead we have tried to paper it over.

What you'll find in this work is a compendium of Janet's writings, many published on Huffington Post (either excerpted or fully) and most, if not all, available on her web page.

So what makes it worth having in this format? Simple -- it's an inexpensive way for you to have them all categorized in a form and fashion that you can look at and understand based on the subject matter. Like all contemporary writers who put forward what amounts to OpEds or pieces that qualify as "reporting" there's a severe problem for the reader who wants to go back and cross-reference or look things up later -- how do you find what you're looking for?

Many people have the same issue with my work at The Market Ticker; there are over 5,000 articles there, and while I have excellent search technology implemented, even I, having written a piece, sometimes take a few minutes to find what I want to reference a year or two later.

Now you have the most important parts of what Janet has expounded on in one place.

You can choose to listen to the politicians who have every reason to, and have, protected the perpetrators of these frauds upon the public or you can choose to listen to actual subject matter experts like Janet Tavakoli. The difference is simply whether you wish to be informed or further deceived.

With this as a backdrop, however, and as a prequel to her upcoming work "The Money Book", this compendium ought to put the lie, once and for all, to the commonly-repeated mantra "Nobody committed any crimes" spewed repeatedly by politicians of all stripes

Highly recommended.

Nobody can dispute that Tavakoli is brilliant and was right on just about everything regarding the financial crisis long before almost anybody else, and the book certainly demonstrates that.

Unfortunately, this compendium will not help anybody unfamiliar with the causes of the crisis to understand it any better. The book is simply a collection of her articles on the subject. All of the articles assume the reader has a lot of knowledge about the subject matter and terminology; she gives very little, if any, explanatory background before launching into her analysis. In addition, the articles are written in almost a stream of consciousness style with little logical organization. Even for somebody like me who is very knowledgeable about the subject matter, the writing style and lack of background explanation made it tough sledding. Finally, it is very, very repetitive. I can understand how that can happen when one is writing articles on a frequent basis, but when putting them together in a book, it is very tedious to read the same thoughts, many times using the exact same phrases, over and over again.

There are many excellent books about the financial crisis that are much better written and easier to understand. True, many of those authors are writing with hindsight, while Tavakoli was pushing out her articles in real time and warning of the consequences. Unfortunately, that does not make reading Tavakoli's book a better way to understand what went on.

I have been following the Titans of the Financial Bloggers such as K. Denninger, Peter Schiff and Janet Tavakoli since the crash of 2008. Janet is right on target. Time to start the prosecuting for the crooks on Wall Street. Janet has summarized her research since the start of the crisis. Well worth the read.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas How Janet Tavakoli WasWay Ahead of The Curve 26 de abril de 2012
Por NYC Reader1 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
Janet Tavakoli was pointing out the problems with credit default swaps (i.e. the opportunities for a handful of insiders to make big money on naked shorts) early on. The protagonist in The Big Short, Dr. Michael Burry, used Tavakoli's earlier book to figure out how he could make big money shorting triple-B subprime mortgage bonds. Unfortunately, others chose to ignore what she had to say.

This excellent book details how those who are beholden to Wall Street continue to push back against her message.
I don't agree with everything she writes, but 95% of it is spot on.
