If you like your smartphone or your widescreen TV, your car or your 401(k), then—whether you know it or not—you are a fan of Wall Street.

William D. Cohan is one of America’s most respected financial journalists. He has long been critical of the bad behavior that plagued much of Wall Street in the years leading up to the 2008 financial crisis, and because he spent seventeen years as an investment banker on Wall Street, he is an expert on its inner workings as well. In his new book, WHY WALL STREET MATTERS, Cohan reminds us of the good these institutions do—and the dire consequences for us all if the essential role they play in making our lives better is carelessly curtailed.

Cover for WHY WALL STREET MATTERSWILLIAM D. COHAN is the New York Times bestselling author of The Price of Silence, Money and Power, House of Cards, and The Last Tycoons, which won the 2007 FT/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.

This event is free and open to the community (no registration required).
