Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

For several years high-profile corporate wrongdoers have been vilified by the media. Yet the problem, according to investigative journalist Weiss, is not just a few isolated instances of malfeasance. The problem is in the very fabric of Wall Street and its practices that enable and even encourage corruption--practices that are so pervasive and so difficult to combat that they are in effect perfect crimes, with the small investor left holding the bag.
