Event description

Description

Markets, stocks, hedge funds... even if you don't think you care about all that, trust us, you do, because Wall Street isn't just a place, it's a powerful force in our economy and our lives. We will head over to the Financial Times Offices to meet with financial journalist and alumna, Rana Foroohar '92 to see where financial news gets made and learn how it impacts all of us. Visit includes a tour of the newsroom and discussion with Rana and other colleagues.

Workshop Instructor: Rana Foroohar '92 is a global business columnist and associate editor for the Financial Times. She is also CNN's global economic analyst. Her new book, “Don’t Be Evil: How Big Tech Betrayed Its Founding Principles – and All of Us,” was released by Crown in November 2019. Her previous book, "Makers and Takers: How Wall Street Destroyed Main Street," was shortlisted for the FT/McKinsey Business Book of the Year award in 2016. Foroohar was named best large publication columnist of 2019 by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers for her technology and policy writing. She is also the 2019 winner of the Arthur Ross Award given by the American Academy of Diplomacy for foreign affairs writing. Previously, Foroohar was the assistant managing editor in charge of business and economics at Time, as well as the magazine's economic columnist. She also spent 13 years at Newsweek, as an economic and foreign affairs editor and a foreign correspondent covering Europe and the Middle East. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, the writer John Sedgwick, and her two children.
