Marc Rich: The King of Oil

Marc Rich

I recorded a podcast with Daniel Amman, author of The King of Oil: The Secret Lives of Marc Rich, a biography of physical commodity trader Marc Rich.  Ammann is Editor at Die Weltwoche, a German-language weekly paper in Zurich. His book is excellent and I highly recommend it.

Readers will learn much about the physical commodities markets, as opposed to the “paper” markets of commodity futures. More importantly, they will learn a very different side of Marc Rich that has not made it’s way through the American media as did President Clinton’s pardon.
