LTCM was the fund that was too big to fail, the brightest star in the financial world. Built on genius, by legends of Wall Street and two Nobel laureates, it spiralled to ever greater heights, commanding unimaginable wealth. When it fell to earth in September 1998 it shook the world. This is the story of the rise and fall of LTCM and the legends behind it. A brave and ambitious work, Inventing Money was written by leading financial journalist Nicholas Dunbar.

Review:

"...a primer for those interested in the world of financial theory."
––Financial Times

"Inventing Money is not the last word on the subject, but it is a good start."
––The Economist

"Dunbar tells the full story of this most public of financial disasters, unveiling previously undisclosed information, in captivating and accessible terms."
––EuroBusiness

"Mr Dunbar has gained the rare distinction of writing an interesting and informative book on a very complex financial subject and for that he deserves much credit."
––Offshore Financial Review

"Dunbar offers us a well–written and informative account of how the company′s culture developed, and why LTCM plummeted so dramatically."
––Balance Sheet

"It is a fast moving and readable account that explains the development of finance over the centuries before recounting the brief but eventful life of LTCM."
––Risk

"A fascinating tale, not to be missed."
––Chartered Secretary

"...his brave effort to explore the LTCM fiasco, its origins, and its ramifications. Dunbar is a former academician and journalist, making him an ideal writer to explore the theoretical origins of LTCM.

The author excels with his affectionate portrait of financial–theory giants such as the late Fischer Black. This book is a good source of information on the theoretical underpinnings of modern arbitrage."
––Business Week

"Nicholas Dunbar has written a fascinating account of this spectacular episode, and in doing so has provided an instructive insight into the functioning of global capitalism."
––CIB News

"Nicholas Dunbar′s fascinating book is well–written. The book should appeal to a wide audience. Economists should certainly read it. Dunbar writes in a clear and accessible manner."
