'Dr. Elder, an internationally acclaimed Wall Street expert, convincingly demonstrates that Russia is in an early stage of a freedom-fueled boom and shows why its stocks are a screaming buy. Russia's stock market is volatile -- but the markets of Hong Kong and Brazil, which in many ways are its forerunners, have risen more than 40-fold from their humble beginnings. There is still plenty of money left on the table -- and Rubles to Dollars is your road map to the Russian stock, bond, and derivative markets.'--from the publisher. Keywords: economics.

Serpent on the Rock, Eichenwald, Kurt
5 Serpent on the Rock Eichenwald, Kurt
0887307205 / 9780887307201 Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition, 1st printing hardcover with dustjacket published 1995 by HarperBusiness. Noticeable store shelfwear. REMAINDER MARK at bottom page edge. Otherwise very clean; pages bright; binding tight; never read. 480 pages; Index; Notes; black-and-white photos. Language: English. From the publisher: An award-winning financial reporter for The New York Times tells the explosive story behind Wall Street's most destructive scandal of the 1980s -- the massive securities fraud perpetrated by Prudential Bache. A real-life thriller more compelling than anything Grisham has dreamed up, this is a story of kickbacks and payoffs, of shady deals struck in secret with known felons; a story in which half a million people lose enormous sums -- some their life's savings -- and names like Onassis and Bush number among the victims. Since the scandal broke, Prudential Bache has been forced to pay out hundreds of millions in damages and virtually all of the firm's senior executives have been brought under investigation.

7 Stealing Time: Steve Case, Jerry Levin, and the Collapse of AOL Time Warner Klein, Alec
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2003 Simon and Schuster. Only light wear. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. 336 pages; Index; Notes; black-and-white photos. Language: English. 'In 1999 Wall Street was enamored with anything dot-com, and America Online was adding new subscribers in droves by giving away billions of free disks. Old-economy media giant Time Warner was trying to figure out how to make money in this new Internet thing. Its CEO, Jerry Levin, was eager to bring the company into the computer-friendly 21st century. Steve Case, CEO of AOL, knew the ride wouldn't last forever and shrewdly leveraged the inflated AOL stock to purchase the much larger Time Warner. Klein fascinatingly fills in the gaps of what is known of this, the largest merger in U.S. history. ... What was supposed to have been a synergy of new and old media turned out to be a total culture clash that led to disastrous results for the company and its stockholders....'--David Siegfried, Booklist.
