ALL THE PRESIDENTS' BANKERS The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power

by | Read by Marguerite Gavin

Contemporary Culture • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Marguerite Gavin is an excellent choice to narrate this audiobook, which uses more than 100 years of financial and political history to make the point that wealthy, well-connected, mostly Ivy League-educated men have run the American economy. While not a great surprise, the author’s investigation does paint a picture of a country in thrall to an elite that has turned away from democratic ideals and social efficacy towards oil profits and higher share prices. Gavin’s low, somewhat gruff voice is energetic and animated. She varies her pitch and tone to propel the narrative forward and to keep the story exciting. While her voice is not elastic, her effective use of pauses and emphasis enhances the book. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
