  • The High-Beta Richby Robert Frank

    The Crown Publishing Group 2011; US$ 26.00

    The rich are not only getting richer, they are becoming more dangerous.

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 16.95

    Financial disasters--and stories of the greedy bankers who precipitated them--seem to underscore the idea that self-interest will always trump concerns for the greater good.
