For Release for Immediate Release - August 1, 2008
New York, NY (August 1, 2008)…It did not take long for the meltdown of the legendary investment bank, Bear Stearns, to be canonized in full fledged novel form for the history archives. The book is co-authored by Andrew Spencer, VP Literary of CMG Holdings Inc. Creative Management Group Inc. www.cmgholdingsinc.com and published by Brick Tower Press to write Bear Trap, the first mass-market book covering the Bear Stearns financial meltdown and an anonymous author who was a senior director at Bear. Bear Trap takes us on a stimulating trip into the sordid world of the Bear Stearns saga, and will be out in stores on September 22, 2008. Bear Trap can also be pre-ordered at Amazon.com. For more information please visit: www.beartrapbook.com.
The book project is just the beginning, though, as Alan Morell, CEO of Creative Management Group Agency, is planning to launch a network bidding process for the electronic rights to Bear Trap in mid-August of this year. Said Mr. Morell, “Bear Trap is the most powerful Wall Street story since the collapse of Drexel, and it has the added drama of the complexities and politics of the Federal Reserve Bank’s involvement. This is tailor-made for a television true-drama story.”
a senior executive at Bear Stearns, describes what happened within Bear’s walls and on the trading floor that resulted in the most sensational financial crisis of our times. He recounts in detail the chain of events that led to the downward spiral–from both Bear's point-of-view and from the overall world financial marketplace’s. He describes the securities manipulations that served to precipitate the credit crisis–those same securities we see in our IRAs and 401Ks. Anonymous reveals for the first time how foreign demand of US capital, too, played a role in the Bear's massacre, and he provides an insider's view of the unprecedented actions taken by the Treasury and Federal Reserve to avoid a world-wide financial crisis. – Brick Tower Press
