    1. Hilarious and maddening nonfiction about Continental Illinois Bank, Penn Square and the many SLs that would regularly and repeatedly cold call any two landmen with a pickup truck between them, to loan them a minimum of a million dollars to set up a fancy office and to maybe drill for oil in the late 70s and 80s The mania for financial deregulation during the Reagan administration accelerated this wild west, anything goes, culture that caused the collapse of many SLs, the need for the RTC, the lo [...]


    2. Mark Singer has given the real picture behind the bankruptcy of the Penn Square Bank, whose collapse in 1982 staggered America s banking industry It is still considered to be the biggest learning for the entire US banking industry Crazy, un believable, staggering are the few words which comes instantly to my mind after reading this booka must read for all those who are in anyway connected to banking industry.


    3. Even though it was written in the 1980 s, its subject matter is entirely relevant to today s energy and real estate markets Those who have no knowledge of Penn Square bank and its influence on the collapse of several other institutions will find this read enlightening and I ll bet you a buck that you ll LOL at least a few times.


    4. About the oil and gas boom bust of the 70s 80s and its effect on some very large US banks, oddly, because of a very small Oklahoma bank called Penn Square.Essentially, the bank became a kind of broker, and the upstream banks lost their risk control in pursuit of growth all aided by a rosy picture of the oil and gas scene in the Texas to Oklahoma belt.Not as financially tuned as I would have liked too verbose for me, and too many side winding stories.


    5. Wow Sorry to say, one of the worst books I ve read in a while I work in banking and am really interested in the topic, but the storytelling was so boring that despite trying hard to plough through, I had to stop Not recommended at all.


    6. So, I just finished reading Funny Money, by Mark Singer, and I am embarrassed to admit that I did a thing I almost never do, which is I read half of it and then didn t finish it for several months.It wasn t a bad book It was, in fact, a pretty good book, but it appears it didn t engage my attention quite enough to prevent me from being distracted by other things, because I am easily distracted when I don t entirely understand what I m reading, and Funny Money is primarily about three things I d [...]


    7. This was a solid, interesting book that really lost steam for me in the second half It was interesting to hear of the type of environment that led to the oil boom in the 1970s, and the subsequent 1980s collapse But once the collapse happens, the books just turns into a crushing play by play of how each guy managed his debt I just can t bring myself to care too much about these white men who got unfair opportunities But Singer does his best to make it entertaining.If you live in OKC and wonder wh [...]


    8. Not, of course, a funny book Rather, yet another episode in that eternally saddening entertainment that is human folly, this time, once again, in the financial sector Singer does not go deeply into the personalities of the main sources of malfeasance, but he provides plenty of anecdotes involving frat boy hijinks, old boy banking networks, and workplace atmosphere at Penn Square Bank that you wonder how the thing was not shut down much sooner The Feds come across as imprudently slow and tolerant [...]


    9. Chasing the dream always has the potential to be a roller coaster and this is a curious tale of a bank which did just that written in a fast paced style which, were it not true, would make great fictionThis book makes a very readable story as you see the bank fall from grace and, like several corporate failures since, what is interesting is the social culture around it The author doesn t go into too much detail about the financial complexities, but gives you enough to make the read and ride high [...]


    10. Description of the early 1980s collapse of Penn Square Bank in Oklahoma City, partly as the result of the oil bust and partly as a result of unrestrained idiocy Interesting to read, especially in light of our recent economic woes and banking irregularities The author is an Oklahoma native and a New Yorker writer, so the prose is finely tuned and not that condescending How many Ultrasuede jackets does one need At least twenty nine What about airplanes Well, owning three isn t necessarily showing [...]


    11. As a reporter, I love this book The level of detail and information is unbelievable at times I find it impossible to believe the level of access Singer had to the participants in the implosion of a bank in boom years era Oklahoma This book is considered one of the high points of new journalism from the 1980s, and the storytelling is very good That being said, there are than a few points where I was lost in the milieu of characters, deals and details of how the upstream banking system works In a [...]


    12. A quick read about the natural gas boom in Oklahoma in the 70 s and 80 s, focused one one shopping mall bank, and how when left unwatched by regulators, it almost blew up itself and 5 other much larger banks Midwesteners take note, this is the story behind the story of Continental Illinois then the largest commercial lender in the country and how it end up being forced onto some other big bank I think BoA.The author has a casual style that helped keep the subject interesting.


    13. Good funny book about the oil and gas boom in Oklahoma in the early 80s These guys were selling their lousy loans up the chain YEARS before mortgage backed securities started doing the same thing Some of the talk of the oil business had me confused at times but the characters in the book were larger than life making it a fun and enjoyable read.


    14. Interesting and relevant given today s bank problems Surprisingly, when you make bad loans from no documentation and sell them up the banking ladder, the dominoes keep falling sarcasm Some interesting parallels to today s economy.
