Young Money

Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits

By Kevin Roose

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

From The Wolf of Wall Street to Liar's Poker, Wall Street's stories of greed and ambition are legendary. Young Money offers a fresh view for the new generation. As well as being an expose of recent excess, it is the story of how the financial crisis changed a generation and remade Wall Street from the bottom up.

'If Martin Scorsese's film The Wolf of Wall Street is about the finance industry's greediest adults, Kevin Roose's Young Money is a look at those wolves as cubs' Amazon.com 'Best Book of the Month'

Every year, thousands of eager graduates are hired by the world's financial giants, where they're taught the secrets of making obscene amounts of money -- as well as how to dress, talk, date, drink, and schmooze like real financiers. Young Money is the exclusive, inside story of this well-guarded world.
Investigative reporter Kevin Roose shadows eight rookies as they are exposed to the exhausting workloads, huge bonuses, and recreational drugs that have always characterized Wall Street life. But they experience something new, too: an industry forever changed by the massive financial collapse of 2008. And as they get their Wall Street educations, they face hard questions about morality, prestige, and the value of their work.

'A great new read that doubles as a post-crash update to Michael Lewis' Liar's Poker - Mother Jones

'A fun fast read that will make you laugh out loud' Fortune Magazine

An excellent book . . . asks a serious and important question: is this really the best use we can make of our brightest young people, to turn them into conformist drones who will mock anyone who turns up at the office in slightly too colourful a tie — Irish Daily Mail

Laugh-out funny' The Sunday Times1 - THE WOLF OF WALL STREETBy day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sunk a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him for at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called...

In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. In this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent - the story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions.
