Barbarians at the Gate tells the (ultimately unsuccessful) story of a group of RJR Nabisco executives who attempted to buy the entire company in what's called a leveraged buyout.On its own, the story is a fascinating look into the world of business, and an overall great example of business reporting.

The 90s was quite an epic era when we think of it. The nostalgia we got from watching Spice Girls, rocking the hair mascara, and downing the dubious shell suits is massive and is why a lot of pop culture today is reverting back to trends first started in the 90s.
