Financier and Politician. Known by the nickname "The Lonely Lion of Wall Street". He concluded his studies at City College of New York, later becoming a broker at an important New York company, where he acquired much experience in the business world. Thanks to the activity of his brokerage company, Baruch quickly became very rich. After his success in business, he became advisor in Economy for the presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt. During World War II he was appointed, as a specialist in commodities and metals, chairman of the War Industries Board, an institution responsible for organizing the U.S. war economy. In 1946, he was appointed by Harry Truman to prepare a plan for disarmament of nuclear weapons, but the attempt was a failure due to opposition of the Soviet Union. According to historians, he coined the term "Cold War", defined as the tension between the two superpowers. (bio by: Lucy Caldarelli)
