Description - Carlos Slim: The Power, Money, and Morality of One of the World's Richest Men by Diego Osorno

The biography of Carlos Slim, one of the richest people of all time, is not just the tale of the first man from a developing country to ever reach the top of the Forbes list of billionaires. It is the story of a character who represents the neoliberal mentality of our times, who mistrusts politicians, believes that the market is the most efficient mechanism for everything (even to combat corruption), and sees philanthropy as a social investment with businesses as the exclusive form of collective wealth.

In this new book, produced through years of thorough investigation, Osorno examines this symbol of twenty-first-century capitalism and of Mexico. Similar surreal dimensions lead Osorno to openly ask whether a man as rich as him can also be a good person.

Buy Carlos Slim: The Power, Money, and Morality of One of the World's Richest Men by Diego Osorno from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
