Taking It To The Banks

Derek Monroe wasa business consultant brokering deals between U.S. and foreign companies. He enjoyed the work, but things changed when a U.S. client used Derek as a pawn to dupe a Japanese businessman who Derek respected. Derek protested, lost the account, and started thinking long and hard about the injustices he believes are perpetrated by corporate America.

Derek now spends much of his time taking large companies, including the big banks, to court when they don’t honor their word. He talks with Dick about finding strength in fighting the small fight.
