THE MONEY KINGS The Epic Story of the Jewish Immigrants Who Transformed Wall Street and Shaped Modern America

by | Read by Jonathan Davis

History • 22.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

As a financial history chronicling the role of Jewish immigrants in America's evolving financial markets between the Civil War and WWI, this audiobook may be of limited interest. Jonathan Davis is skilled and effective, and the narrative is well researched. But what makes this story so compelling, and so relevant to today's events, is the historical link between Wall Street and anti-Semitism. Davis's steady narration is a virtue as he delves into the origins and evolution of many ingrained prejudices. Often these are based on assumptions and misunderstandings; for example, during WWI Jewish financiers were particularly suspect because most of them had German accents. The insights offered here are provocative and highly illuminating. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
