“Prins is a born story-teller. She turns the history of the moneyed class into a breathless, page-turning romance—the tawdry affairs of bankers and the presidents who love them. It’s brilliant inside stuff on unforgettable, and unforgivable, scoundrels.” -Greg Palast, investigative writer for BBC TV, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits author

The relationship between Washington and Wall Street isn’t really a revolving door. It’s a merry-go-round. As Prins shows, the merriest of all are the bankers and financiers that get rich off the relationship, using their public offices and access to build private wealth and power. Disturbing and important.”  -Robert Reich

“Nomi Prins follows the money. She used to work on Wall Street. And now she has written a seminal history of America’s bankers and their symbiotic relationship with all the presidents from Teddy Roosevelt through Barack Obama. It is an astonishing tale.” -Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize winning biographer

All the Presidents’ Bankers speaks to the raw truth today of what Louis D. Brandeis said a hundred years ago: “We must break the Money Trust or the Money Trust will break us.”-Ralph Nader

Nomi Prins is an American author, journalist, and Senior Fellow at Demos. She has worked as a director at Goldman-Sachs and as an analyst at Bear Stearns. It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street, was her loudest whistleblower book …so far.

Brian Edwards-Tiekert is the co-host and co-producer on KPFA Radio’s morningshow Up Front, weekdays at 7am.
