Jimmy Adams was laid off from a hedge fund in early 2009. Wearied by eight years in the bond market and disillusioned by the financial services profession, he decides to get an “honest job” for a change. Before he knows what hit him, Jimmy finds himself waiting on tables of barflies at his local Waffle House. Amidst the glorious chaos of the night shift, the 24-hour diner affords a bevy of comedic experiences as the author struggles to ingratiate himself with a motley crew of waiters and cooks. Unexpectedly, the restaurant also becomes a font of insight into financial markets and the human condition. In a uniquely hilarious and thought-provoking narrative, Waffle Street unravels the enigmas of money, banking, economics, and grits once and for all. As they laugh heartily at the author’s expense, readers will develop a profound appreciation for the first principle of economics: there really is no such thing as a free lunch.

Author Bio: James Adams

James Adams spent the first five years of his career as an investment analyst at Protective Life Insurance Co. and Jefferson-Pilot Financial. Subsequently, he was a vice president at a $30 billion money management firm. Although he was a CFA charterholder and earned an MBA in finance, most of his financial knowledge has been gleaned from his recent foray into food service and the writings of forgotten nineteenth-century economists.
