The violent financial disruptions of the past several years have toppled nearly all of the lords of Wall Street, except for a few voices that warned of economic collapse. Among them, Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Paul Volcker. Though their experiences and styles vary, the careers of these three men are, to a large degree, stories of success in volatile times. With the benefit of his own deep understanding of markets and finance, Charles R. Morris brilliantly analyzes their records—and argues for the importance of humility and common sense in navigating the current global economic crisis.
