Aaron Glantz - Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream — in conversation with Sarah Bloom Raskin — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his new book, this Peabody Award-winning journalist at The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal, whose public interest stories have sparked dozens of Congressional hearings and led to probes and legislation, looks at the 2008 housing crisis from the perspective of the Trump era. Tracking both winners and losers as relaxed regulations turned lending into a market of mortgage “products,” Glantz tells moving stories of those forced to default on loans, highlighting the predatory role of the wealthy who increased their fortunes by buying up property—among them Trump, several members of his cabinet, and key figures in the Republican Party. Glantz will be in conversation with Sarah Bloom Raskin, former member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of the Treasury.
