The House of Morgan: An American Banking Dynasty and the Rise of Modern Finance is a non-fiction book by Ron Chernow, published in 1990. It traces the history of four generations of the J.P. Morgan financial empire, on both sides of the Atlantic, from its obscure beginnings in Victorian London to the crash of 1987.
The reviewer for the New York Times Book Review said, "As a portrait of finance, politics and the world of avarice and ambition on Wall Street, the book has the movement and tension of an epic novel. It is, quite simply, a tour de force."
The reference to Satoshi happens in the book when discussing the history of JP Morgan in Tokyo. In the book, it says:
In this part of the book, it explains that Satoshi Sugiyama was adopted by an American, and given the name David Phillips. Hence the "Satoshi/David" reference. The important part of this that is inferred is that this person was two people, Satoshi and David, who did not having formal banking training but was able to be a "hybrid" or someone that could use their special characteristics to their advantage.In it's quest for the branch, the House of Morgan had one last weapon, a man of indeterminate nationality known as both Satoshi Sugiyama and David Phillips.
Satoshi's father wanted him to have an American education, so Satoshi was adopted by John Phillips, an American, who renamed Satoshi to David Phillips. He went on to live in America for 13 years.
What is even more interesting is the fact that Satoshi / David are two people. To me this represents a single entity that is Craig Wright (Satoshi) and David Kleiman (David Phillips). What is even more abstract is that Kleiman (Phillips) mentored Wright (Satoshi), as Kleiman seemed to be the brains behind duo - that is if you accept or at least theorize that Kleiman and/or Wright had something to do with the creation of Bitcoin.
Here is the passage from the book:
