I’ve been asked to publicize this event by my good friend Ruth Baldwin of Nation books. While I would not personally allocate precious funds from our babysitting account to enable me to attend this event, I love Ruth and am happy to do as she asks:
The Great American Stickup: Clinton, Bush and Obama—How the White House Moved from Main Street to Wall Street
Join bestselling authors Robert Scheer and Joe Conason for a wide-ranging discussion on the causes and consequences of the continuing financial crisis, and why successive administrations have championed Wall Street over Main Street.
This conversation will be moderated by Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, and will include audience questions and a book signing.
October 28, 2010.
Free and open to the public.
Bruno Walter Auditorium, New York Public Library of the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
111 Amsterdam Avenue (between 64th and 65th Streets), New York City.
