What was one of the most memorable moments of Barbarians of Wealth?
The discussion of the deep level of security that surrounded the creation of the Federal Reserve. Today -- nothing like that would be possible. This book does not cover the creation as "how demonically clever these men are" but more as if she was creating an introductory paragraph for a Fail blog.
What does Jo Anna Perrin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
There's a dismay and "grandpa's got gravy on his tie" embarrassment for the current people in power that comes across so well in her vocal delivery that might be missed in print.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
"Fakers gotta fake". The comparison between people and institutions that actually moved society forward and people who scooped off the best bits for themselves could not be more stark.
Any additional comments?
The last sixth of the book contains some action plans, which are useful as far as they go, but the primary benefit of this book is the magician's reveal; once you know how the trick was done you won't ever be clapping and admiring the people who put themselves on stage ever again.
