MUST READ: The Secret Lives of Marc Rich
Okay, we have a must read book in September, Ron Paul’s End the Fed. It’s due out September 16.
Now comes word that, in October, an authorized biography of Marc Rich is due out, The King of Oil: The Secret Lives of Marc Rich
Marc Rich is one of the most remarkable men of finance. I know a number of traders that worked for Rich. All the stories they tell me about Rich point to one thing, Rich has one of the most creative, aggressive and shrewd minds in finance, with a governments be damned attitude. He’s one of a kind. People tell me that he kept Henry Kissinger on his payroll, even while he was living in Switzerland as a fugitive. I can’t really believe he is going to tell all, but if he tells 10% about his operations, it is going to be one fascinating book.
