Lords of Finance - POSTPONED

The Bankers Who Broke the World

Today's event has been postponed, due to the inclement weather. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will announce the new date as soon as it is determined. 

Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World, examines how the Great Depression resulted from decisions made by the heads of the nation's central banks. Author Liaquat Ahamed discusses the history of the world economic collapse of the late 1920s and provides insight into the nature of the global economic crisis. This important book is especially relevant to our current headlines as the new administration focuses on the existing economic crisis.
