Andrew Ross Sorkin @ Stanford
Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PST)
PLEASE ARRIVE BY 2:50pm TO RESERVE A SEAT
Join us for a riveting discussion about the defining crisis of our time: the 2008 financial crisis that fundamentally reshaped America's (and our) future. No one can tell this story better than Andrew Ross Sorkin, the award-winning columnist and reporter for The New York Times.
Sorkin wrote the acclaimed book Too Big to Fail: How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System -- and Themselves. It received unqualified praise from reviewers and readers alike, and was described as "an absolute tour-de-force" by The American Prospect.
In 2011, Sorkin co-produced the Emmy award-winning HBO adaptation of his book, starring Paul Giamatti and William Hurt.
In addition to his writing for The New York Times, he co-anchors CNBC's "Squawk Box." He has been recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader, and is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations.
