About this item
A Capitalist’s Lament: How Wall Street Is Fleecing You and Destroying America is just as astonishing and eye-opening as it sounds. Wall Street is destroying America, and Leland Faust has given us the only protection available: education.By giving readers a high-level view of how the financial-services industry misleads them, overcharges them, and exposes them to needless risk, Faust exposes Wall Street’s unsavory tactics in powerful detail and documents its many masked failuresalluring come-ons, airbrushed risks, high-stakes gambling, distortions, half-truths, false promises, misleading statements, falsified research, outlandish predications, tricks to overcharge customers, bad deals, and outright fraud by the most prominent and renowned of Wall Street’s players.A Capitalist’s Lament is about ethical issuesabout what happens when financial firms and their employees forget whose interest they are supposed to protect. It shows how making foolish or wrong predictions is of no consequence and how Wall Street luminaries with poor track records still garner celebrity status. And most of all, it spotlights how Wall Street manipulates the system and furthers its own interests at its customers’ expense and puts us all at great risk.Financial insiders have turned a rational Wall Street into the glitz of the Vegas Strip. Leland Faust protects readers from business as usual and helps them get ahead instead of getting taken.
