Talking Financial Fraud on The Compound

On my recent trip to NYC, we carved out 10 minutes with Barry and Michael to discuss my new book. Here’s what we talked about:

  • Why I wrote this book
  • Type I vs Type II charlatans
  • How the match business led to one of the biggest frauds you’ve never heard of
  • The guy who scammed Al Capone and why he’s one of my favorite characters from the book
  • What types of market environments exist when people are more likely to be defrauded
  • Why the wealthy and educated class are more likely to fall for a financial scam
