"Eine geniale Reise in die Vergangenheit" The Washington Post New York, 1888. Thomas Edison hat mit seiner bahnbrechenden Erfindung der Glühbirne ein Wunder gewirkt. Die Elektrizität ist geboren, die dunklen Tage der Menschheit sind Vergangenheit. Nur eine Sache steht Edison und seinem Monopol im Weg, sein Konkurrent George Westinghouse. Zwischen den beiden Männern entbrennt ein juristischer Kampf, es geht um die Milliarden-Dollar-Frage: Wer hat die Glühbirne wirklich erfunden? Und wer hat also die Macht, ein ganzes Land zu elektrifizieren? Der NEW YORK TIMES-Bestseller jetzt auf deutsch! Graham Moore, der für sein Drehbuch für den Film "Imitation Game" mit einem Oscar ausgezeichnet wurde, ist mit "Die letzten Tage der Nacht" ein packender historischer Roman gelungen, der auf wahren Ereignissen beruht.

"Halten Sie einen Vortrag über Volkswirtschaft, und Sie werden sehen, wie schnell Ihr Publikum müde wird. Erzählen Sie Ihren Zuhörern jedoch eine Geschichte, über die sie schmunzeln können, dann sind Sie in der Lage, ihnen fast alles beizubringen." Getreu diesem Motto lehrte der berühmte Ökonom Irwin Schiff seine Söhne die Grundlagen der Volkswirtschaft. Die Geschichte, die er Ihnen dazu erzählte, haben Peter und Andrew Schiff nun aufgeschrieben. Klug und amüsant an die heutige Zeit angepasst zeigen sie, wie politisches und ökonomisches Fehlverhalten den Zusammenbruch ganzer Volkswirtschaften auslösen können. Ihr Buch ist eine Fabel darüber, wie Politik und menschliche Schwächen dazu führen, dass die Gesetze von Angebot und Nachfrage missachtet werden - was bei allen Beteiligten zu massiven finanziellen Kopfschmerzen führt. Das Buch wurde im Rahmen der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2010 mit dem International Book Award 2010 ausgezeichnet.
