Paulson. Again.



You might remember I’ve mentioned the $3.7-billion-dollar man several times. I’m sure you’re not surprised to know he’s in the book I’m reading -- All the Devils Are Here -- anymore than I am.

Here’s three more must-read paragraphs. Don’t worry about all the fancy names for financial instruments. You’ll understand the truth of it. It’s pretty simple.

I’m trying to find words to describe how despicable a system is that won’t let bankers keep people in their homes because some Wall Street guy is going to get rich if they get kicked out. I’m failing.

I can’t say enough good things about All the Devils Are Here. It will make you mad. It’s all so unbelievable. You’ve got to read it.

By the way, I always miss the Shakespearean references (because I can’t read Shakespeare.)

”Hell is empty. And all the devils are here.”

The Tempest
William Shakespeare
1611

Thanks for the suggestion. It's next in my queue after Decisions.
