Upton Sinclair was an American writer and political activist. He gained enormous popularity when his eloquent 1906 novel The Jungle exposed conditions in the U.S. meat-packing industry, and years later, he earned a Pulitzer Prize for his series tale, Dragon’s Teeth. In The Moneychangers, Sinclair explores the Wall Street panic of 1907 in novel form, exposing greed and corruption within the American system.
