Publisher: Beard Group, Inc.
John Rothchild vividly portrays the era of the Debtor Barons, the 1980s, when a new breed of undaunted entrepreneurs made untold millions buying companies with virtually no money out of their own pockets. The most astute of these Debtor Barons was Robert Campeau, a Canadian real estate developer, who became a primordial force in the American retail industry. This enticing but sobering book is fascinating reading for anyone who ever had a credit card or applied for a loan.
