I have been teaching accounting, and business for the last three decades, with a focus on financial analysis. My last three books have been financial analysis, with an emphasis on fudging the numbers-called earnings manipulation.
My passion is history and I took time out from financial analysis to write a draft of food history called Primordial Soup...It turns out I like punning, as well.
I am combining history and financial analysis in my latest effort, co-authoring a book tentatively titled: The Dark Side of Capitalism. It's basically a financial history of the U.S. with a primary interest in business corruption and scandals. The driving force is the current sub-prime loan debacle. It turns out that all the ingredients have been brewing at least since the 1980's and the current mess has similarities to virtually all previous scandals going back to the Duer debacle of 1792.

Wouldn't you like to know as much as you could about a company before you invest in it?
