New York Investing Meetup

New York, NY, March 13, 2012 --( Bestselling Author Nicholas Wapshott to Appear at the New York Investing Meetup.

Nicholas Wapshott, the author of “Keynes Hayek: The Clash That Define Modern Economics” will be appearing at the New York Investing Meetup on March 22nd. Financial blogger Daryl Montgomery and organizer of the group will be interviewing Wapshott on the Keynes Hayek rivalry.

“Keynes Hayek: The Clash That Defined Modern Economics” has refocused the public debate on the opposing views of these two major economists. The same issues of whether or not government can fix a broken economy that the two titans argued about eighty years ago are still relevant today and are the subtext of the current presidential election. Wapshott’s work is an engaging tale that takes the reader from the great debate that raged in the 1930s between Keynes forces in Cambridge and Hayek’s in London to how the U.S. and Europe got itself into the current financial mess that exists today. The book is written so it can easily be understood by anyone regardless of their background in economics.

Although Wapshott has been appearing before record crowds at universities in England, he was nevertheless “happy to confirm his appearance” at the 3500 member New York Investing Meetup. The group has hosted a number of authors and usually produces standing room only crowds and has a webinar connection so people outside of New York can participate in its meetings. “It is our goal to become a must stop on the book tours for authors of significant economic and investing books,” said organizer Montgomery. “This is part of our overall strategy of providing timely and unbiased information to the public,” he continued. Members seem to agree the group is successful in this regard with regular attendee Bob Rubin summing up the views of many by stating, “each meeting is a valuable education.”

Nicholas Wapshott is the former New York bureau chief of The Times of London. Previously, he was editor of the Saturday Times of London, and founding editor of The Times Magazine. As political editor of The Observer, Wapshott covered Margaret Thatcher’s final years in office. In 1983, he wrote one of Margaret Thatcher’s first biographies. He is a regular broadcaster on MSNBC, PBS, and FOX News.

The March 22nd meeting is open to the public and will take place at Estonian House in Manhattan, which is located at 243 East 34th Street from 6:30 to 8:30PM. There is a $10 admission charge. Mr. Wapshott will be interviewed between 7:00 and 8:00 and will sign books afterward. The remaining program will be a talk on the state of the markets. For more information, please go to:
