內容簡介


金融史上最大騙局之一!
看幾個少數人如何操控Libor而大量獲利,最後又是如何被捅上一刀而行跡敗露。


倫敦銀行同業拆放利率(London interbank offered rate;簡稱Libor)目前是國際間最重要且最常被應用的市場利率,也是全球貸款方與債卷發行人普遍參考的利率,銀行藉由借存利率的差別而獲取利潤。2006年,一個由金融從業者、生意人以及股票經紀人所形成的怪異組合,在一個極聰明數學家的主導下,上演一齣讓自己荷包滿滿的詐欺戲碼。

這場騙局的主要人物包含:
Tom Hayes,一個惹上麻煩的數學家,是這個集團的關鍵人物。
綽號”咕嚕”(Gollum),渾身是刺的法國生意人。
股票掮客”阿寶”(Abbo),每次酒後老是喜歡在公開場合脫個精光。
以”得喀得喀”(Derka Derka)為人所知,且神經兮兮的哈薩克雞場主人。
另一個名為”村莊白癡”(village idiot) 股票掮客,利用報銷帳目而大量獲利。
因為頭髮禿成一塊一塊,外號”阿叢”(clumpy)的銀行行員。
曾經是半職業拳擊手,後來成為股票經紀人的”大鼻子”。

這些人究竟如何在Libor上悄悄地動了手腳,藉由操控利率而大量獲利?後來又是如何被揭發的

本書作者透過獨家管道,近身接觸這個大騙局的主要人物,獲得大量事證,將這個世紀金融大諞局說得活靈活現,並且挑釁地檢視了這個金融體系被整個操弄的經過。

In 2006, an oddball group of bankers, traders and brokers from some of the largest financial institutions made a startling realization: Libor―the London interbank offered rate, which determines the interest rates on trillions in loans worldwide―was set daily by a small group of easily manipulated administrators, and that they could reap huge profits by nudging it fractions of a percent to suit their trading portfolios. Tom Hayes, a brilliant but troubled mathematician, became the lynchpin of a wild alliance that included a prickly French trader nicknamed “Gollum”; the broker “Abbo,” who liked to publicly strip naked when drinking; a nervous Kazakh chicken farmer known as “Derka Derka”; a broker known as “Village” (short for “Village Idiot”) who racked up huge expense account bills; an executive called “Clumpy” because of his patchwork hair loss; and a broker uncreatively nicknamed “Big Nose” who had once been a semi-professional boxer. This group generated incredible riches ―until it all unraveled in spectacularly vicious, backstabbing fashion.

With exclusive access to key characters and evidence, The Spider Network is not only a rollicking account of the scam, but also a provocative examination of a financial system that was crooked throughout.
