James Kwak, contributor to the “Baseline Scenario” blog and author of the nationally acclaimed new book “13 Bankers” will be giving a talk and signing his book on the East Side this Sunday.
Bill Moyers says of this book, “If the wads of money you’ve stuffed into your mattress for safekeeping don’t keep you up at night, Simon Johnson and James Kwak’s “13 Bankers” will — a disturbing and painstakingly researched account of how the banks wrenched control of government and society out of our hands — and what we can do to seize it back.”
As Congress considers President Obama’s financial reform proposals, come hear from a compelling speaker about this most important topic.
James Kwak’s work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Financial Times, Los Angeles Times, Business Week, The Atlantic, The New Republic, and the online editions of The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Guardian, among others.
