Confidence Men

Ron Suskind

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Ron Suskind discusses his book "Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President" at the Miami Book Fair. "Confidence Men" is the story of the fall of the U.S. economy, the rise of President Barack Obama, and the President's harrowing battle to take control of his White House. Suskind chronicles the first two years of the Obama presidency, interviewing over 200 people, including the President, and quoting internal documents from the White House which indicate that some of Obama's decisions were either stalled or never implemented by members of his first economic team.
