About This Event

 

The 2008 financial crisis led to the worst recession in the United States since the Great Depression, increased the unemployment rate, and prompted enormous bailouts of multibillion-dollar corporations.

In his new book, “Infiltrated: How to Stop the Insiders and Activists Who Are Exploiting the Financial Crisis to Control Our Lives and Our Fortunes” (McGraw-Hill, August 2013), Jay Richards explains how a select group of activists, philanthropists, and Washington insiders laid the foundation for the economic meltdown and how they continue to exploit the financial crisis for their own gain. Richards debunks the myth that centralized financial regulation helps the poor and disenfranchised and argues that inappropriate regulation was responsible for the 2008 crisis. 

Join Richards and a panel of financial experts for the first Washington, DC, discussion of Richards’s new book.
