Author Nomi Prins:
All the President's Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power

The relationship between Washington and Wall Street isn't really a revolving door. It's a merry-go-round.

Based on original archival presidential correspondence, All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power exposes a century of tight, personal relationships and interdependence between America's past 19 presidents (from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama) and key bankers (from J.P. Morgan to Jamie Dimon) even including intermarriage. It explores the shocking ways in which the same people, through blood, mentorship and other symbiotic collaborations impacted American domestic and foreign policy and shaped the nation's status as a super-power. Prins's book examines how these relationships have effected the establishment of the Federal Reserve, two world wars, the Cold War, Vietnam, the Iran hostage crisis, and all the international economic crises from the Panic of 1907 through today. It divulges the historical alignment of the White House and Wall Street, and presents a haunting examination of America's geneology of power.

This unprecedented history of American power illuminates how the same financiers retained their authoritative position through history, swaying presidents regardless of party affiliation. All the Presidents' Bankers explores the alarming global repercussions of a system lacking barriers between public office and private power. Prins leaves us with an ominous choice: either we break the alliances, or they will break us.

Nomi Prins is an American author, journalist, and Senior Fellow at Demos. She has worked as a director at Goldman-Sachs and as an analyst at Bear Stearns.

It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street was her loudest whistleblower book. . . so far.
