High Financier: The Lives and Time of Siegmund Warburg
October 5th, 2010
53 min 38 sec
Niall Ferguson

You may need: Adobe Flash Player.

Niall Ferguson tells the story of Siegmund Warburg, a refugee from Hitler’s Germany who rose to become one of the dominant figures in finance in post-war Europe. He was one of the architects of European financial integration and a key advisor to governments in London, Tokyo and Jerusalem. An obsessive perfectionist with an aversion to excessive risk, Warburg came to embody the ideals of high finance and was as much a psychologist, politician, and actor-manager as he was a banker.

Niall Ferguson is a best-selling author and a writer and presenter of television documentary series. He is Laurence A. Tisch Professor at Harvard University and a senior research fellow of Jesus College, Oxford University. His latest book is High Financier: The Lives and Time of Siegmund Warburg.
