Ep-4 Gregory Zuckerman – What “The Greatest Trade Ever” Means For You And Me

Play

My guest today on the Traders Edge Podcast is an award-winning financial columnist and reporter for the Wall Street Journal. He’s also a New York Times Best Selling and critically acclaimed author of 2 books: His first book is titled: “The Greatest Trade Ever: The Behind The Scenes Story of How John Paulson Defied Wall Street and Made Financial History” which has now been translated into 9 languages.

And his most recent book is called: The Frackers, which examines various individuals and independent companies who pioneered the fracking process within the United States.

His name is Gregory Zuckerman

Early in his career at the Wall Street Journal, Greg wrote the widely read “Heard on the Street” column. These days, as a special reporter, Greg writes about big financial trades, hedge funds, private-equity firms, the energy revolution and other investing and business topics.

He appears regularly on CNBC, Fox Business, Yahoo Finance and makes appearances on NPR, the BBC, ABC Radio, Bloomberg Radio.

In 2012, Greg broke the story about the huge, disastrous trades by J.P. Morgan’s “London Whale”. He’s won the prestigious Loeb award, which is the highest honor in business journalism.

I had the privilege of first visiting with Greg about 4 years ago and came away with some breakthrough insights from that interview that have helped me in my investing and trading.

I think you’ll find some gold in this brand new interview with a person that has a rare, unique look into the world of big money, it’s personalities and how this gives you and me an edge.

I hope you enjoy!
