Billion Dollar Whale: The Man Who Fooled Wall Street, Hollywood, and the World
The “extraordinary” (Financial Times) instant New York Times bestseller exposing how a “modern Gatsby” swindled over $5 billion with the aid of Goldman Sachs and others–a “must read” (Booklist) tale of finance run amok and “the heist of the century” (Axios).
In 2009, with the dust yet to settle on the financial crisis, a mild-mannered Wharton grad set in motion a fraud of unprecedented gall and magnitude–one that would come to symbolize the next great threat to the global financial system. The scandal is known as 1MDB, and the man behind it, Jho Low, is a figure so preposterous he might seem made up.
Clive Angel Review
Billion Dollar Whale is an exceptionally well researched, fast-paced and engaging read.
The inside story of Jho Low is intriguing from the Hollywood celebrity parties and designer yachts to the corporate boardrooms of the leading Investment Banks and the manipulative lives of politicians and fund managers.
A Highly recommended and enjoyable read highlighting everything that is wrong with the greed infested and materialistic politically motivated and financially driven world we are surrounded by.
