Why Wall Street Matters

Bestselling author William D. Cohan (P. '16, '17) has long been critical of the bad behavior that plagued much of Wall Street leading up to the 2008 financial crisis. As an ex-banker, he's also an expert on the sector’s inner workings. But in recent years he has become alarmed by the vitriol directed at the bankers, traders and executives who keep the wheels of our economy turning. In a conversation with Jerry Caprio, William Brough Professor of Economics and chair of the CDE’s executive committee, he’ll discuss his new book, Why Wall Street Matters. Sponsored by the Center for Development Economics and the Economics Department.
