Marc Rich: The King of Oil

Marc Rich

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.

    Another interesting paradox was that Glencore frequently supplied metal to the US Mint.
