How Wall Street Created A Nation: J.P. Morgan, Teddy Roosevelt and the Panama Canal
Ovido Diaz Espino
in 1997, while attending a Manhattan Christmas party, J.P. Morgan lawyer Ovido Diaz Espino met someone who told him that Panama had been created by a group of Wall Street investors in room 1162 of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. As a native Panamanian, Diaz Espino was so roused by the claim that he immediately went to the library and started digging. 'How Wall Street Created A Nation' is the account of what he found: an event in world history that brought down a French republic and a Colombian government, created a nation, shook the almost invincible Teddy Roosevelt and gave birth to American imperialism in Latin America.
