'The rise of Investors Overseas Services (IOS) and its creator, Bernard Cornfiled, was the success story of international finance in the sixties, the proof that the benefits of capitalism, American style, could be extended to the world at large : the crash of its fortunes in spring 1970 shook many of the most august financial institutions of the western world as well as smashing the hopes of thousands upon thousands of investors great and small, Berlin to Brazil.'
