What "Liar's Poker" was to the 1980s, "The Zeroes" is to the first decade of the new century: an insider's memoir of a gilded era when Wall Street went insane-and took the rest of us down with it. Randall Lane never set out to become a Wall Street power broker. But during the decade he calls the Zeroes, he started a small magazine company that put him near the white-hot center of the biggest boom in history. Almost by accident, a man who drove a beat-up Subaru and lived in a rented walk-up became the go-to guy for big shots with nine-figure incomes. Lane's saga began with a simple idea: a glossy magazine exclusively for and about traders, which would treat them like rock stars and entice them to splurge on luxury goods. "Trader Monthly" was an instant hit around the world. Wall Streeters loved the spotlight, and advertisers like Gulfstream, Maybach, and Bulgari loved the marketing opportunity. To accelerate the buzz, Lane's staff threw parties featuring celebrities, premium steaks, cigars, and top-shelf vodka. Nothing was too expensive or too outrageous. Private jets in Napa Valley. Casino nights in London. And $1,000-a- seat boxing matches in New York, where traders from Goldman Sachs and Bear Stearns pounded each other in front of tuxedoed throngs. Before long, Wall Street's rich and powerful trusted Lane as a fellow insider- the guy who could turn an anonymous trader into a cover model and media darling. And the rest of the world sought him out as a way to tap into Wall Street's riches. As he emptied his bank account to help keep his little company afloat, he became a nexus for the absurd. Traders who turned 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina into multimillion-dollar windfalls. John McCain closing out the craps tables during an all-night gambling binge. Pop artist Peter Max hustling hundreds of thousands of dollars by selling traders paint-by-numbers portraits. Al Gore, John Travolta, Moby. Corrupt Caribbean rulers, the mobsters from "Goodfellas," the pope. And a ret

Review of Rage - Incoming
Advantages: still easy to get Disadvantages: gets boring after awhile
...affects on your phone such as the phrase "incoming" for text messages which in the game is for when you are getting attacked.
Value for money- the price to buy this new is still high at £24.98 and used from 77p (both amazon) which one would you buy ? :P
Type of game- basically a battle style game where you blow the other players worms up.
I have played the other worm games so it is good that this...
Advantages: Outstanding performance, Small flexible fund, superb management Disadvantages: 5.25% initial charge, but discounted through execution only brokers.
...When a fund manager is prepared to invest his own pension fund in the fund he is managing, I'd say that shows confidence and commitment. Artemis Income fund was launched on 17 May 2000 and has proved to be a tremendous growth stock, without regard for the income potential. I understand that, not only do the management team have heaps of their own money invested in their funds, but their...
