9781587980824: Too Big to Fail: Olympia & York: The Story Behind the Headlines

The astonishing story of the rise, fall, and revival of the Reichmann family fortunes.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Publisher:

This is the amazing account of the Reichmann family who escaped from Nazi-occupied Hungary in World War II to become listed in Fortune magazine in 1991 as the fourth richest in the world. Their flagship company, Olympia and York, was deemed "too big to fail" by the Wall Street Journal; but it did fail. In a clear and often humorous way, this book chronicles the disaster, the restructuring process, and the astonishing rise of Reichmann International from the ashes of the predecessor company.

About the Author:

In his past, Walter Stewart has written about the big goofs and games played by government and corporations in real estate, banking, newspaper publishing, energy, airport construction and more. He has also written two novels. But he has now decided to write about Canada and Canadians

The titles of some of his 25 books tell the story: Towers of Gold, Feet of Clay (a 1982 attack on the banking system that is just as timely today), Hard to Swallow (on the food industry), The Golden Fleece (how the stock market steals our money) and, his latest, Dismantling The State, Downsizing to Disaster (in which he explains how corporate Canada has virtually been let off the hook in tax terms).
