A behind-the-scenes look at today’s kingmakers: institutional investors. Out of the public eye, a small group of professionals–investment experts who handle other people’s monies–are exerting ever-greater control over corporate managers, firing CEOs and pushing through ‘restructurings’ that cost thousands of jobs. Michael Useem’s “Investor Capitalism” portrays the quiet, veiled nature of this dance of elephants, and portrays the enormous implications of its results. –John Rekenthaler, Publisher, Morningstar, Inc.
