How bankers bought their way into the American Presidency.


We think of them as being progressive – and there are social matters in which they are more progressive – but when it comes to money and big business, there tends to be more legislation passed on behalf of industry policies under Democrats than Republicans.

Author Nomi Prins surveys the close relationship between banks and American presidents, from funding campaigns to influencing monetary policy long after elections, and links the Clinton and Bush dynasties to a past (and future) of financial deregulation.

Nomi is author of the book All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power, which was just released in paperback.
