Summary
Randolph's account of Bloomberg's life and time reads almost like a novel, a quintessentially American story. She explains the "machine" he invented that gave and continues to give instant access to an infinite amount of information to bankers and investors on how, what, and where to invest, and how it changed the financial universe. Bloomberg has come under fire from activists for his role in implementing the stop and frisk program, where police were directed to stop, question and pat down hundreds of thousands of innocent people, mostly African American and Latino, as part of the mayor{u2019}s signature gun control program. Bloomberg{u2019}s ability to buy silence presents a challenge to democracy because while American democracy can{u2019}t be snuffed out by brute force, it can be drowned by money. After a surprising third term as Mayor, Bloomberg returned to his business and doubles its already tremendous worth
