Weekend read: The gambler who blew $127m

This week’s recommendation is an article from the Wall Street Journal, in which Alexandra Berzon sets out the extraordinary story of Terrance Watanabe and his huge loss over the course of a year in Las Vegas. To me, it’s a shocking tale of corporate irresponsibility – but I’m quite sure others will see it differently.
