Garden City, NY, April 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Adelphi University is pleased to host a book discussion with Suzanne McGee, author of Chasing Goldman Sachs. The event will take place on Monday, April 18, 2011; at 1:00 p.m. in room 109 of Adelphi’s Hagedorn Hall of Enterprise, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. Limited space is available and pre-registration is required.
In Chasing Goldman Sachs, Ms. McGee provides an incisive look at the forces that transformed Wall Street from its traditional role as a capital-generating and economy-boosting engine into a self-serving structure on a destructive spiral with reckless disregard for the overall financial system and those who relied on that system for their well being and prosperity. As banking undergoes its biggest revolution since the 1929 crash and the Great Depression, Ms. McGee illustrates where it stands today and points to where it needs to go next, examining the future of financial institutions supposedly “too big to fail.”
Ms. McGee is currently a contributing editor at Barron’s. After spending more than 13 years as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal in Toronto, New York, and London, she became a freelance contributor to more than a dozen business publications, including Barron's, The Financial Times, Institutional Investor, and INC. She has written about the financial markets for various publications, including the New York Post and Portfolio.com and is a Loeb Award winner for a multimedia series on consumer culture in China.
