Tales to Tell: Memoir

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 354 pages
This is a book about an ordinary boy whose career took him to the highest levels of Jefferies & Company, Inc., which is now the nation's largest securities firm, and who was then thrust into conflicting positions he never dreamed could happen. It is a book about a father who experienced vivid premonitions, one of which was a terrifying fatal automobile accident involving his son, which occurred one week later, claiming the life of this young man. It is about a young scholar who earned professional degrees in economics from Columbia and Oxford Universities, and who became one the nation's first champions of free markets. It is the story of what it meant to see the overwhelming destructive power of Soviet tyranny on people, yet never to give up hope of freedom, and to be honored on this behalf by the President of Estonia.
