Saturday Coffee Table: Money Talking Weekend Reading

Friday, March 15, 2013

Money Talking host Charlie Herman and regular contributors Joe Nocera of the New York Times and Rana Foroohar of Time magazine tell us what they're reading this weekend.

 Charlie Herman will finish reading Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin. "While it's not necessarily a business story per se, I think it really does kind of tie into how you actually, how you get the political system to work in times of crisis, and we've been going through a lot of them recently."

Rana Foroohar will be reading Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo. "She spent years in this ghetto by the airport reporting on the lives of these people who are the dark side of globalization in the emerging world, and what really strikes me is that the core problem of the rich world and developing world is the same: Inequality."

Joe Nocera will be reading the article "Guggenheim is Flexing its $170 Billion Muscles" in the latest issue of Fortune magazine. "Guggenheim Partners is this firm that nobody has really ever heard of that in the last fourteen years has gone from being fundamentally the family fund for the Guggenheim family, the same Guggenheim family that built the museum, to being a sprawling hedge fund, privaty equity fund that has over $170 billion in assets."
