MoneyLion Bookclub: Billion Dollar Whale

An epic true-tale of hubris and greed from two Pulitzer-finalist Wall Street Journal reporters, Billion Dollar Whale reveals how a young social climber pulled off one of the biggest financial heists in history--right under the nose of the global financial industry--exposing the shocking secret nexus of elite wealth, banking, Hollywood, and politics.

With billions swindled in a scheme spanning almost the entire globe, the 1MDB scandal is the biggest and most convoluted financial heist in recent memory. WSJ journalists Tom Wright and Bradley Hope document the rise of Jho Low. Rarely has a book gripped the Malaysian imagination the same way that this one has, selling out almost immediately everywhere throughout the nation.

Was this young businessman, barely out of school and with a pretty short track record, really able to deliver Arab investment? He seemed well connected, but would these powerful Middle Eastern kingdoms pour billions of dollars into the 1MDB fund just because Low wanted it to be so? Why did they need him as a broker? Join us for a night full of interesting discussions!
