Investigate This: The Wall Street Money Machine
*Please note an RSVP on this page does not guarantee you a seat. The venue may change depending on the level of interest in this event*
Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer talks with ProPublica’s Jesse Eisinger and Jake Bernstein about their Pulitzer-prize winning Wall Street Money Machine series (http://propub.ca/hXbp0g) which examined the ways banks and hedge funds masked the weak housing market and ultimately exacerbated the financial crisis.
This is the first in a series of monthly talks hosted by ProPublica and the Tenement Museum — an organization that promotes tolerance and historical perspective through the presentation and interpretation of immigrant and migrant experiences on Manhattan’s Lower East Side: http://www.tenement.org/
This event is open and free to the public. Seats will be available on a first come, first served basis.
