THE LAST TYCOONS The Secret History of Lazard Fr?res & Co.

by | Read by David Aaron Baker

History • 9 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

Cohan portrays the men who built Lazard Fr?res & Co. from a dry goods store in New Orleans in 1848 to one of the large merger and acquisition brokers operating in New York City today. The account covers the firm's growth from a family-owned company to an international broker. David Aaron Baker narrates in a warm, smooth voice. His emotional involvement draws the listener into this blended history and biography. Cohan spends the majority of the story focused on the internal struggle, in the 1980s, between Felix Rohatyn, the astute financial advisor who helped the City of New York out of bankruptcy, and Michel David-Weill, the last heir of the original partners.
