About Me:
I'm a senior fellow at the non-partisan think tank, Demos, and author of: "It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bailouts, Bonuses and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Streett", "Other People's Money: The Corporate Mugging of America" and "Jacked: How Conservatives Are Picking Your Pocket." Before becoming a journalist, I was an investment banker for over a decade: a managing director at Goldman Sachs and ran the international analytics group at Bear Stearns (R.I.P.) in London. I just completed my first historical novel, circa the stock market crash of 1929, and am working on a new non-fiction book.
