'Exile on Wall Street':
1. Offers an analysis of the regulation and fallout stemming from the financial crash and points out the relationships that many supposed outsiders have with the insiders.
2. Chronicles his adventures as an analyst at many of the biggest banks in the world, including some of his most outrageous adventures: being escorted out of the building from Lehman in the 90s after giving notice (Mayo didn't understand that his analysis came second to supporting the firm's investment bankers and their deals); being let go from Credit Suisse after Mayo put a sell rating on the entire banking sector in May 1999; getting banned from talking to the press while at Deutsche Bank in the middle of the financial crisis, and being named the CEO-killer' for asking CEOs if it was time they were replaced.
3. Provides solutions to Wall Street’s messy antics. This includes more capitalism in a system where there simply isn’t enough of it.
