- Eye Opening
Economic analyst Sam Wilkin’s guide to wealth is a tongue-in-cheek analysis of robber barons and monopolists – those he calls the “filthy rich.” His original title for the book was Wealth Secrets of the One Percent, which better captures his subversive tone. Wilkin brings a welcome, breezy style to a topic that can be as dry as the legalese in an antitrust lawsuit. He doesn’t write like an economist, and that’s a compliment. getAbstract recommends this engaging study to managers, investors and students looking for a clear-eyed take on the world’s most successful businesspeople.
