OCTOBER SINAI FORUM FEATURES NOMI PRINS
The 58 th season of the Purdue University North Central Sinai Forum will feature author and journalist Nomi Prins, on Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. at Elston Middle School.
Nomi worked on Wall Street as a managing director at Goldman Sachs and ran the international analytics group at Bear Stearns in London. Today, she is a journalist, lecturer and a Senior Fellow at Demos, a non-partisan public policy research and advocacy organization founded in 2000.
Prins will speak to “Getting it Straight: Economic Revision Time.” She will expose the fundamental follies of the economic system and the schemes of those who have no intention of letting it change. Anyone who may be angry and frustrated with how the bank bailout went bust for the American people, or how Wall Street continues to operate, Prins will provide a deeper understanding of the situation and how to fight for some real change.
She has authored several books. Her most recent is “It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street.” She also published “Other People's Money: The Corporate Mugging of America,” an exposé of corporate corruption, political collusion and Wall Street deception. It was chosen as a Best Book of 2004 by “The Economist,” “Barron's” and “The Library Journal.” Her book “Jacked: How ‘Conservatives' are Picking your Pocket (whether you voted for them or not)” details her travels across the country as she talks to people about their economic lives.
There will be a book signing after the program.
