Dark towers : Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an epic trail of destruction
Enrich, David
Books
In Dark towers, journalist David Enrich reveals the truth about Deutsche Bank and its epic path of devastation. Tracing the banks history back to its propping up of a default-prone American developer in the 1880s, helping the Nazis, and wooing Eastern Bloc authoritarians, he shows how in the 1990s Deutsche made a fateful decision to pursue Wall Street riches, often at the expense of ethics and law. Soon, the bank was manipulating markets, violating international sanctions to aid terrorist regimes, scamming investors, defrauding regulators, and laundering money for Russian oligarchs. Ever desperate for an American foothold, Deutsche also started doing business with a self-promoting real estate magnate who most banks deemed too dangerous to touch: Donald Trump. Over the next 20 years, Deutsche executives loaned billions to Trump, the Kushner family, and an array of scandal-tarred clients. Dark towers in the saga of how Deutsche Bank became the global face of financial recklessness and criminality -- the corporate equivalent of a weapon of mass destruction.
