All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power exposes a century of tight relationships and interdependence between America’s past 19 presidents (from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama) and key bankers (from J.P. Morgan to Jamie Dimon.) It unveils the ways in which the same people, through blood, mentorship and other symbiotic collaborations drove American domestic and foreign policy and transformed America into a super-power. Spanning the creation of the Federal Reserve, two world wars, the Cold War, Vietnam, the Iran hostage crisis, and international economic crises from the Panic of 1907 through today, APB divulges the historical alignment of the White House and Wall Street, presenting a haunting examination of the geneology of power.
