rogoff coverInterview by Larry Levin, Publisher, St. Louis Jewish Light

Kenneth Rogoff is the former Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund and was named a Top 15 Most Influential Economist by The Economist Magazine. In his newest book, The Curse of Cash, Rogoff makes a fascinating and persuasive case for phasing out paper money. He reveals that the big problem with currency—large bills in particular—is that in all advanced countries, it’s often used to facilitate tax evasion and criminal activities. Rogoff is the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University and the author of the New York Times bestseller, This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly. He holds the life title of international grandmaster of chess.

“A fascinating and important book.”–Ben S. Bernanke

Sponsored by Abeles and Hoffman, P.C.; Brown Smith Wallace, LLC; Capes Sokol; Gail & Louis Glaser; Pulaski Bank – Busey
