Becoming a young Wall Street banker is like pledging the world's most lucrative and soul-crushing fraternity. Every year, thousands of eager college graduates are hired by the world's financial giants, where they're taught the secrets of making obscene amounts of money-- as well as how to dress, talk, date, drink, and schmooze like real financiers.

Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits

YOUNG MONEY is the inside story of this well-guarded world. Kevin Roose, New York magazine business writer and author of the critically acclaimed The Unlikely Disciple, spent more than three years shadowing eight entry-level workers at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and other leading investment firms. Roose chronicled their triumphs and disappointments, their million-dollar trades and runaway Excel spreadsheets, and got an unprecedented (and unauthorized) glimpse of the financial world's initiation process.

Roose's young bankers are exposed to the exhausting workloads, huge bonuses, and recreational drugs that have always characterized Wall Street life. But they experience something new, too: an industry forever changed by the massive financial collapse of 2008. And as they get their Wall Street educations, they face hard questions about morality, prestige, and the value of their work.

YOUNG MONEY is more than an exposé of excess; it's the story of how the financial crisis changed a generation-and remade Wall Street from the bottom up.

Praise for YOUNG MONEY:

"If Kevin Roose's finely crafted YOUNG MONEY does not scare you straight about the life of a young financial analyst on Wall Street, it can't be done. Roose's frolic through Wall Street's playpen is a must-read."
--William D. Cohan, New York Times bestselling author of House of Cards and Money and Power

"Despite all the press about Wall Street, the stories that don't usually get told are those of the recent college graduates who clamor for the chance to work 100 hour plus weeks at the big banks. Kevin Roose's new book, which follows a handful of analysts through the trials and tribulations of their early years on the Street, is a thoughtful exploration of their motivations and their experiences-and it's a great read."
--Bethany McLean, coauthor of the New York Times bestsellers The Smartest Guys in the Room and All the Devils are Here

"A cautionary true-life tale, YOUNG MONEY should be required reading for every college student who is contemplating a job on Wall Street. As for the rest of us, who remember Wall Street before 2008, Kevin Roose has provided a great window into how that world has changed-and how it hasn't."
--Connie Bruck, New York Times bestselling author of The Predators' Ball

"When Michael Lewis wrote Liar's Poker in 1989, he hoped to discourage ambivalent young elites from starting careers on Wall Street. The opposite happened. Kevin Roose may have better luck with Young Money, his look at rookie bankers in the wake of the financial crisis." --Bloomberg Business Week

"Highly entertaining and impressive ... Roose's captivating read is sure to appeal to readers young and old who are interested in the zeitgeist of Wall Street since the crash."
--Publishers Weekly

"[Young Money] offers a compelling glimpse of Wall Street in the post-2008 recession era...thought provoking, excellent book."

"The young people who have flocked to Wall Street are often badly used, caught up in power struggles among middle management and little appreciated ... [Young Money] captures the daily indignities to which the junior capitalists are subjected."
-- Kirkus Reviews

Das Buch bietet durch die Erfahrungsberichte aus den vielen verschiedenen Blickwinkeln ( Verschiedene Banken, Abteilungen) einen super Einblick. Es liest sich von der ersten Seite an sehr gut und erhält durch den neutralen Blickwinkel des Autors eine zusätzliche Ansicht. Kann das Buch jedem weiterempfehlen der sich für das Thema Banking interessiert, bzw. sich bereits damit auseinandergesetzt hat.

2.0 von 5 Sternen too preachy 28. Februar 2014
Von Ole Jastrau - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book because I've long had a macabre fascination with the junior analysts and the banking "lifestyle" (which seems to mean the lifestyle of people just starting out after college who live in apartment shares and piss away all their money trying to make girls at clubs think they're rich). I work in financial services, but I came to finance later in my career. I've never worked in a bank, so I don't know what it's like, but my colleagues who have didn't have an experience resembling this.

The book is amusing in parts and a quick, easy read. My main objection to the book is that it doesn't feel serious. It comes off mainly as an excuse for Roose to do "research" by spending a few years partying and going out for dinner with his college buddies. Then at the end of it all, he can write a cautionary book of amateur sociology.

Roose's most interesting observation is not new: smart and talented but risk-averse college students go into banking after they graduate because it's an easy way to continue the achievement oriented lives they're used to, and because it saves them any hard thinking about what the heck to do for a career. The descriptions of the lives of first- and second-year analysts are entertaining, and the subjects are likable. At some point Roose even decides his college buddies are too likable, so he goes out of his way to attend the Fashion Meets Finance party so he can report back that in fact, yes, all the people he hasn't met are awful. And that's the key problem with the book: it seems like he's working hard mostly to reinforce all the prejudices he started with.

Roose's main agenda is convincing us that everyone who stays in banking is, or eventually becomes, an amoral psychopath (and the natural corollary is that college grads should go work at Facebook or a startup instead). Senior people appear in his book only as caricatures: they behave reprehensibly, showing up only to say something truly despicable or utterly tone deaf. Roose claims he couldn't get a single relatively senior person on Wall Street to talk to him about what it's like to work there, but it's hard to believe he tried very hard: after all, his sources are all anonymized. So he instead crashes Kappa Beta Phi, and tells us that every plutocrat is just like the people there, although some might be better at hiding it.

A lot of books have been written since the financial crisis that purport to tell us what is broken on Wall Street. Many of them do a better job than Young Money showing us what has gone wrong. I wish Roose had spent less time sermonizing and judging his friends' choices, and focused more on telling us what their lives are truly like and why.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible Book 18. Februar 2014
Von SN2013 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book offers incredible insight into the lure of Wall Street for young professionals and explains the reasons for why despite all the bad publicity that Wall Street has gotten in the past couple of years, smart young people are still flocking to financial jobs.


- Quick read. Written by a journalist, the language is very accessible and enjoyable.

- No stereotypical traps or cliches. More often than not, Wall Street books are riddled with cliche's and contain information that has already been widely reported and offers nothing insightful to a reader.

- The subjects of the book are diverse! This is the book's biggest plus point. The author focuses on 8 different young professionals who he interviewed over the past 3 years. And for a change, they actually represent a good cross-section of society- different races, women, socio-economic backgrounds etc..

- The banks and divisions focused on are also diverse. The book examines different banks and their different sub-divisions, which is good for those who may want to learn about the workings of the financial industry.

- It can be difficult to write a non-fiction book without strong opinions about your subject. Few authors manage to avoid that trap, and Kevin Roose luckily happens to be one of them. He humanizes his subjects without passing too much judgement either way. I found myself invested in the people he was describing and caring about their narrative without any unnecessary intrusions from the author's own thoughts.


- None! This book is like a sociological study on finance today and young finance professionals that for once does not paint 22 year olds as greedy sociopaths, but instead more accurately portrays them as 20-something bright, passionate, somewhat confused and lost, college students who are trying to navigate the system to the best of their abilities.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "If money is not your main concern, you should leave." 18. Februar 2014
Von takingadayoff - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ten years ago, "investment banker" was TV sitcom shorthand for extremely date-able. Today, apprentice investment bankers pretend to be lawyers or consultants, rather like American overseas tourists slapping Canadian flags on their suitcases during the Iraq war.

It's time for an update of the Liar's Poker confessional that Michael Lewis made popular and others followed. Until now, no one's written about what it's like to be an investment banker after the Great Recession. Kevin Roose, barely out of college himself, stepped up and interviewed a batch of new investment firm trainees and tells their stories.

Roose profiles a cross-section of students and recent graduates -- some had their sights on finance careers and others, some had other plans, or no plans. He follows them into the artificially hectic and stressful atmosphere of the first two years at a big investment firm. Long hours and impossible assignments keep them stressed even as they can see the deliberate futility of their tasks. It's tradition to make life hell for the newbies. It weeds out the sissies and toughens the rest up. At least that's the theory.

The new kids keep their eyes on the goal, which is a secure career in a prestigious (well, formerly prestigious) field, but mostly the big paycheck. Their mentors and advisers keep reminding them that it's all about the money. "We're not here to save the world. We exist to make money." "You know, helping the world is great and all, but you need to be motivated by money." "You know, if money is not your main concern here, you should leave."

It's a gripping narrative, and Roose isn't completely journalistically balanced, but he realizes where he's likely to be biased and tries to be as objective as possible.

He also cites some excellent books about the topic of the culture of Wall Street. In addition to Michael Lewis's books on the subject, he mentions Karen Ho's Liquidated: An Ethnography of Wall Street (a John Hope Franklin Center Book) and Melissa Fisher's Wall Street Women. I would also add Caitlin Zaloom's excellent Out of the Pits: Traders and Technology from Chicago to London, an ethnography of the Chicago Board of Trade and the London Stock Exchange.

(Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a review copy.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eye-opening and well-written, a must read for anyone who works with young professionals in the banking/financial services field 24. Februar 2014
Von Robesie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved Kevin Roose's first book, "The Unlikely Disciple" because he was able to explore an area I knew nothing about (evangelical college students) in an informative and non-degrading way. Roose has done the same with "Young Money." I am a non-profit fundraiser that works with young professional donors, many of whom work in the financial service companies that Roose's subjects also work at. His journalistic yet human interest style of writing made the book a must-read and explained so much about the way my donors live and act. The stories he tell are relatable yet unrelatable at the same time and despite their exorbitant paychecks, you see the human side of banking in a way I hadn't expected. I read the Kindle version of this book on a long flight and am so glad I did. I recommend it to anyone who wants to go into finance or works with young professionals in finance. It was anthropological and captivating and made me very happy to work in the nonprofit sector, even if I'm not always sure I can make rent at the end of the month.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "We're giving all that to this? " 18. Februar 2014
Von Amelia Gremelspacher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Roose had this melancholy thought while following the lives of new investment bankers. He interviewed eight financiers who interestingly could only speak under strict anonymity. In numbers from 36% to 60% of graduating seniors who have jobs. Even post 2008, financial institutes absorb huge numbers of the most capable and elite of our youth. Most are hired as analysts. They make a nice living, but trade their lives for their compensation. Most work 100 hour weeks and are expected to change any plan with no notice.

Roose started to watch this group when Wall Street was the villain of the day and bankers were reviled as a group. One young entrant worried the "social contract" of starting out small and through hard work achieving goals had been breached. The question we pursue is the reason our brilliant young continue to the goal. The premise makes fascinating reading, nicely documented, and written clearly.
