Description:
New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1989. Robert M. Fomon was a man dedicated to E.F. Hutton. He envisioned the firm's new, pink marble headquarters in Manhattan as a prominent symbol of the giant corporation that Hutton had become under his leadership. Everything about the building bespoke success. Unfortunately, by the end of 1987, when Bob Fomon's twenty-nine story memorial to his own achievement was finished, so was the firm. 'The Fall of the House of Hutton' untangles a web of intrigue unlike anything Wall Street has experienced in recent years. Hutton, one of the oldest and best-known names on Wall Street, did nor fall victim to a stock market crash or the industry's relentless drive toward consolidation. The end began with check-kiting...a scam to defraud large and small banks that almost gave the company interest-free loans..... A bright square copy....remainder mark to bottom edge. No ownership markings.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.
