Zeus on Wall Street PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Zeus on Wall Street free pdf "Zeus on Wall Street" is an allegory of the present-day world economy. The mythos of King Midas symbolizes greed, and the story of Belerophon, the chimera slayer, can be interpreted as representing the hubris of modern-day tycoons, imagining themselves as gods. Hydra's multiple heads and arms can be likened to megaconglomerates and multinational corporations, their tentacles reaching every sector of the economy. Mythological heroes such as Hercules, Theseus, Perseus, and Odysseus have their modern-day equivalents in serial hi-tech entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Larry Page. "Zeus on Wall Street" takes the reader on a fascinating journey through ancient Greek mythology and the modern myths of the present-day economy. The similarities are striking--both cultures worship rationality and efficiency, ingenuity and resourcefulness, aggressiveness, risk taking, and the inexorable drive for success.
