USF Sarasota-Manatee, Cumberland Advisors, and the Global Interdependence Center invite you to our third annual Financial Literacy Day, to be held April 11, 2019, from 8:30 AM to 4 PM in the Selby Auditorium of the USFSM campus.
The theme this year is “Financial Markets and the Economy,” and the event will feature a number of panel discussions and special presentations, including the keynote speaker, Gretchen Morgenson, Senior Special Writer in the Investigations Unit at The Wall Street Journal.
The WSJ says of Morgenson:
“Following a stint on Wall Street, she began covering the financial markets in 1986 at Forbes. In 2002, she won a Pulitzer Prize for her “trenchant and incisive” reporting on Wall Street for The New York Times. She has also won three Gerald Loeb Awards and is a co-author of Reckless Endangerment, a bestselling 2011 book about the origins of the 2008 financial crisis.”
See our write-up about Gretchen’s “Don’t Blink, or You’ll Miss another Bailout” 2013 article where she focused on secretive decision making at the NY Fed. Part of the greatness of America includes the constitutional right of a free press and we’re pleased Gretchen Morgenson is among them.
Ms. Morgenson will have a reception at the conclusion of her talk and her book, Reckless Endangerment, will be available for those who wish it.
Update (04/12/2019): Gretchen Morgenson’s keynote address and Q&A session from the conference are posted here. Enjoy!
