Ugly Americans

by Ben Mezrich

in Books / Hedge Funds, People

John Malcolm is barely 30, a high school football hero and Princeton graduate, he controls a hedge fund worth $50m.

In the '90's dozens of elite young American graduates made millions in hedge funds in the far East, beating the Japanese at their own game, riding the crashing waves of the Asian markets and winning.

Failure meant not only bankruptcy and disgrace a la Nick Leeson, but potentially even death - at the hands of the Japanese Yakuza.
