The Lost Bank

Author: Kirsten Grind
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781451617948
Release Date: 2012-06-12
Genre: Business & Economics

During the most dizzying days of the financial crisis, Washington Mutual, a bank with hundreds of billions of dollars in its coffers, suffered a crippling bank run. The story of its final, brutal collapse in the autumn of 2008, and its controversial sale to JPMorgan Chase, is an astonishing account of how one bank lost itself to greed and mismanagement, and how the entire financial industry—and even the entire country— lost its way as well. Kirsten Grind’s The Lost Bank is a magisterial and gripping account of these events, tracing the cultural shifts, the cockamamie financial engineering, and the hubris and avarice that made this incredible story possible. The men and women who become the central players in this tragedy— the regulators and the bankers, the home buyers and the lenders, the number crunchers and the shareholders—are heroes and villains, perpetrators and victims, often switching roles with one another as the drama unfolds. As a reporter at the time for the Puget Sound Business Journal, Grind covered a story set far from the epicenters of finance and media. It happened largely in places such as the suburban homes of central California and the office buildings of Seattle, but Grind covered the story from the beginning, and the clarity and persistence of her reporting earned her many awards, including being named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Gerald Loeb Award. She takes readers into boardrooms and bedrooms, revealing the power struggles that pitted regulators at the Office of Thrift Supervision and the FDIC against one another and the predatory negotiations of investment bankers and lawyers who enriched themselves during the bank’s rise and then devoured the decimated bank in its final days. Written as compellingly as the finest fiction, The Lost Bank makes it clear that the collapse of Washington Mutual was not just the largest bank failure in American history. It is a story of talismanic qualities, reflecting the incredible rise and the precipitous collapse of not only an institution but of trust, fortunes, and the marketplaces for risk across the world.

Burlesque and the New Bump n grind

Author: Michelle Baldwin
Publisher: Speck Press
ISBN: 0972577629
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Performing Arts

Though burlesque has survived in the back of our cultural consciousness after being pushed aside by modern stripping in the '50s, the revival that began in the early '90s has finally brought burlesque back to the forefront of popular culture. Evolving from an underground movement to a nearly mainstream fetish, neo-burlesque embraces a wide variety of modern interpretations all based on the classic bump and grind and “taking it off” with a wink and a smile. From classic tributes to punk rock revisionists, women of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds are rediscovering burlesque and reinventing it. A sense of heightened imagination, empowerment and energy are being delivered to the stage, perhaps even more so than during the historic heyday, the Golden Age of Burlesque. Slipping behind the scene, Burlesque and the New Bump-n-Grind undresses the issues of feminism, modern popularity, and what exactly draws the unique and varied audience members to the shows. The women—and men!—of burlesque also receive their fleshed-out dues by a categorized peek into the various troupe styles including classical, re-creationists, revivalists, modern, circus, performance art, political, queer, bawdy singers and comics. Peppered throughout the book are full-color and black-and-white photographs that fully instill the picturesque dance into the reader's mind. Founder of one of the first neo-burlesque troupes, author Michelle Baldwin (a.k.a, Vivienne Va-Voom) has helped to bring the lost art of burlesque back to the forefront of pop culture. Baldwin has served as the creative director, choreographer, music director, costumer, financial head, and performer for her troupe, “Burlesque As It Was.” Her deep immersion into this art form has provided her with a rare view into the growth and evolution of the revival.

The Rise and Fall of Gunns Ltd

Author: Quentin Beresford
Publisher: NewSouth
ISBN: 9781742241937
Release Date: 2015-02-01
Genre: Nature

At its peak, Gunns Ltd had a market value of $1 billion, was listed on the ASX 200, was the largest employer in the state of Tasmania and its largest private landowner. Most of its profits came from woodchipping, mainly from clear-felled old-growth forests. A pulp mill was central to its expansion plans. Its collapse in 2012 was a major national news story, as was the arrest of its CEO for insider trading. Quentin Beresford illuminates for the first time the dark corners of the Gunns empire. He shows it was built on close relationships with state and federal governments, political donations and use of the law to intimidate and silence its critics. Gunns may have been single-minded in its pursuit of a pulp mill in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley, but it was embedded in an anti-democratic and corrupt system of power supported by both main parties, business and unions. Simmering opposition to Gunns and all it stood for ramped up into an environmental campaign not seen since the Franklin Dam protests. Fearless and forensic in its analysis, the book shows that Tasmania’s decades-long quest to industrialise nature fails every time. But the collapse of Gunns is the most telling of them all. ‘This is a tale that needed telling. It is an important case history in environmental campaigning and a must-read for anyone interested in fairness and transparency in government.’ – Geoffrey Cousins AM, businessman and president of the Australian Conservation Foundation

The Rise and Fall of American Growth

Author: Robert J. Gordon
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 9781400888955
Release Date: 2017-09-05
Genre: Business & Economics

In the century after the Civil War, an economic revolution improved the American standard of living in ways previously unimaginable. Electric lighting, indoor plumbing, motor vehicles, air travel, and television transformed households and workplaces. But has that era of unprecedented growth come to an end? Weaving together a vivid narrative, historical anecdotes, and economic analysis, The Rise and Fall of American Growth challenges the view that economic growth will continue unabated, and demonstrates that the life-altering scale of innovations between 1870 and 1970 cannot be repeated. Robert Gordon contends that the nation's productivity growth will be further held back by the headwinds of rising inequality, stagnating education, an aging population, and the rising debt of college students and the federal government, and that we must find new solutions. A critical voice in the most pressing debates of our time, The Rise and Fall of American Growth is at once a tribute to a century of radical change and a harbinger of tougher times to come.

The Brand Within

Genre: Business & Economics

On September 11, 2001, Jennifer Sinclair, a young Texan living in London, saw her homeland attacked: the World Trade centers, the Pentagon, and a plane which crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. It was difficult to be an American in a foreign country, even an ally of America's, following the events of September 11. Now married to a New Scotland Yard senior detective, Jenny never expected the climate of terrorism from the United States to sweep across the Atlantic and bring an undercurrent of fear to the United Kingdom. Jenny now lives in the idyllic northwest London suburb of Hampstead, but she feels the uneasiness that all Americans abroad do. When it takes only one crazed individual to commit unreasoning violence, no one can consider himself or herself completely safe. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police assigns extra officers to patrol possible target areas in what he calls, Operation Calm, but Jenny is not reassured. Then a cargo ship in the English Channel, reported to be carrying terrorist material, is boarded by anti-terror police. Although the New Scotland Yard spokesman insists that there is no danger to the public, she isn't relieved. Not long afterward, Richard Reid, who was born and raised in Britain, tries to destroy an American Airlines plane in flight with a bomb in his shoe. Each incident seems to be happening closer and closer to home. Her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Colin Sinclair, recalls the days of IRA terrorism and assures her that police officers in the UK have a good deal of experience fighting terrorists. IRA terrorists, however, generally did not choose to die with their targets, and this new breed of evildoers seems to be willing to stop at nothing. Still, Jenny never expected the clouds of violence to strike close to home and threaten her loved ones. Then early in 2002, a terrorist attack occurs in London and devastates her. Reeling from the trauma of sudden grief, Jenny's world is turned upside down, and she must find the strength to adjust to a life she would not have chosen, separated from family and in a country not her own. Supported by an ex-Royal Army chaplain, counseled by a psychiatrist, and guided by Metropolitan Police officers who have become friends, Jenny struggles to make a new life for herself. Then a new danger appears, on the quaint streets of her Hampstead home, a danger she will have to face alone. Thus The Mission continues the story of Houston-born Jenny -- who traveled to London in the previous novel, The Witness -- and the Metropolitan Police Service detectives and witness protection officers who kept her safe following her brutal attack by a serial killer. She faced a long recovery from her physical injuries and an even longer one from the trauma of violence. Testifying against her attacker in spite of her fear strengthened her, and gradually she moved from being a victim to being a survivor. The final step, however, involved leaving her trauma behind to become a victor, someone free to embrace hope and love.
