Abstract:

Jim Paul's meteoric rise took him from a small town in Northern Kentucky to Governor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, yet he lost it all?his fortune, his reputation, and his job?in one fatal moment of excessive economic hubris. In this honest, frank analysis, Paul and Brendan Moynihan revisit the events that led up to Paul's disastrous decision and examine the psychological factors behind bad financial practices in a number of economic sectors. The book begins with the unbroken string of successes that helped Paul achieve a jet-setting lifestyle and land a key spot with the Chic.
