New York Times bestselling author Robert Frank explores the world of the high-beta rich and shows how their increasing influence is dangerous for America.
Robert Frank is a senior special writer at the Wall Street Journal, where he writes a weekly column and daily blog called The Wealth Report. He has been with the Journal for 13 years, with postings in Atlanta, London, Singapore, and New York, and was part of a team that won an Overseas Press Club Award in 1998 for its coverage of developing economies. Robert lives in New York with his wife and daughter. Educated at Juilliard and having performed with orchestras internationally, Paul Costanzo has brought the sensitivity and nuance of a classical music background to the world of voice acting for over twenty-five years. He was chosen by New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter to record titles in her FBI series, and AudioFile magazine has called his narration "Superb."
"The High-Beta Rich vividly illustrates how the wealthy and those they employ have become increasingly tied to the vicissitudes of the stock market and the macroeconomy. It is a cautionary tale for all." ---Steven Neil Kaplan
