Jim is joined by former Bloomberg Journalist David de Jong, author of a new book that delves into the ties between Germany's biggest business families and Nazi Germany.

Nazi Billionaires: The Dark History of Germany's Wealthiest Dynasties
“A provocative group portrait of five industrialists who expanded their fortunes by colluding with Hitler and then, after World War II, walked away with minimal punishment and barely a dent in their bottom lines... In this meticulously researched book, Mr. de Jong, an investigative journalist and former reporter at Bloomberg News compels us to confront the current-day legacy of these Nazi ties."—The Wall Street Journal
