A Meet the Author Event

Who: Kevin Phillips, political and economic commentator

Event: Over the past months, the U.S. dollar has continued its free fall. In his new book, Bad Money: Reckless Finance, Failed Politics and the Global Crisis of American Capitalism, Kevin Phillips argues that the American economy, despite its global dominance, is built upon a house of cards. Phillips investigates the decline of the dollar over the last six years, proposing this is result of Washington’s financial irresponsibility, as well as its failure in Iraq, and explores the political and commercial implications of its plummeting value. Lastly, he weighs in on what the new administration must do to reverse the tide of wayward megafinance.
