Show 13 - 03/04/13 - Leah McGrath Goodman


This edition is two hours in length, 8.00pm - 10.00pm BST, with special guest author, historian and investigate journalist LEAH McGRATH GOODMAN. She is a writer-at-large for Institutional Investor, a contributor to CNN/Fortune and member of the London Speaker Bureau. Her work has appeared in The Financial Times, Barron's, The Wall Street Journal and Forbes, and has been kicked out of at least one country (the UK for researching the Jersey Child Abuse atrocities at Haut de la Garenne). She wrote a best-selling book which was nominated for the 2011 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. Her specialty is institutionalized cultures of corruption.

"The Asylum: Inside the Rise and Ruin of the Global Oil Market" is the name of Leah's ground-breaking book.  This is what the news release for the new paperback edition had to say:

"The is one place where traders have cut their teeth for decades before going to work for some of the most notorious money machines in history—Enron, Amaranth, Centaurus, MF Global and Goldman Sachs, to name a handful — not to mention the Federal Reserve and even the Oval Office. Look no further than the New York Mercantile Exchange, a former egg, cheese and butter market in downtown Manhattan where global oil prices have been set since the 1980s – and are set to this day.

"But who runs this market? And why has its existence been kept from most of America? In this collection of interviews with high-ranking traders, bankers and government officials, Leah McGrath Goodman shows in stripped-down terms how unchecked complicity between Wall Street and Washington led to the creation of a global energy marketplace rife with indulgences and loopholes that have long allowed the nation’s speculators to manipulate U.S. oil prices – and almost never be punished.

"Weaving together personal narratives with hard data and facts across three decades, Goodman tells the all-too-human American story of how a small group of traders who couldn’t get jobs on Wall Street gained a stranglehold over the global market not only for oil, but gasoline, natural gas, silver and gold.

"Note: This paperback contains new material not found in the original hardcover, including evidence from recently released government documents offering definitive proof that U.S. oil prices were manipulated to $100 a barrel when they first hit the high in 2008. This triggered record-high gas prices at the pump, which topped $4 a gallon the same year – to the detriment of every working American.

"Other key highlights from The Asylum include:

  • Why the man who built the global oil market ultimately chose to abandon his creation.
  • How the global oil market arose from a failed potato exchange in the 1980s.
  • Why the man who launched the U.S. gas market was run out of office in the 1990s.
  • which top U.S. regulator for the oil market jumped ship in 2004 to become its CEO.
  • What happened behind closed doors when U.S. oil prices hit $100 for the first time in 2008 – and what government officials did when they found out they had been manipulated."
