Peter Mountford on his novel "A Young Man's Guide to Late Capitalism,"

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with fiction writer Peter Mountford about his new novel "A Young Man's Guide to Late Capitalism," which tells the story of Gabriel de Boya, a recent college graduate who works for an unscrupulous hedge fund while pretending to be a freelance journalist. Mountford drew on his own experience for the book. Just out of college, he was hired to write about the economy of Ecuador for a nonprofit think tank. He later discovered that the think tank was running a hedge fund out of its back office.

Jess Walters, author of "The Financial Lives of the Poets" describes "A Young Man's Guide to Late Capitalism" as a "parable of the voracious global economy."
