From award-winning columnist MATT TAIBBI – the writer who shook the financial media world when he famously compared Goldman Sachs to “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity” in a Rolling Stone article – comes GRIFTOPIA, the dramatic story behind the most audacious power grab in American history.
Before becoming a whistleblower/journalist and Senior Fellow at Demos, NOMI PRINS worked on Wall Street as a managing director at Goldman Sachs, and ran the international analytics group at Bear Stearns in London. Her latest book is IT TAKES A PILLAGE.
The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A and book signing with the authors.
Tickets are $30 for admission only, and $50 for admission plus book (GRIFTOPIA).
A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Veterans Project.
