Breaking Down the Noise: How the Political-Financial Complex Drives Policy & Markets
Economists focus on the economy, politicians their next election and bureaucrats their next appointment. However, what drives markets lies in the intersection of finance and government. Nomi Prins delves into the history of complicated collaborations between major banks and politicians to inform her views on the future of global trade, investment and potential destruction. She stresses the way in which yesterday's decisions and interplay between top government and banking leaders will impact tomorrow's markets.

Keeping Your [Customers/Edge] from [Going to/Against] the Big Boys
Even before the 2008 Crisis, big banks have been getting bigger in more ways than one through decades of mergers and the expansion of allowable financial service. Since the 2008 Crisis, that trend has accelerated. Not only have the biggest banks grown bigger, but in the process, they have taken more customers, deposits and financial investments along the way. How do you keep your edge? How can you remain a player instead of getting played? What can you provide your customer – from dedication to funding and less risky performance standards – to make you a better choice than your larger competition? Nomi Prins will address these critical issues for today's small businesses, local or state bank associations, pension fund managers and other investment advisors.
All the Presidents’ Bankers
Power is about more than wealth, capitalism vs. socialism or communism. Rather, it's about the bonds, strategic alliances and partnerships that transcend the worlds of Wall Street and the White House. Some of these alliances have been positive to the stability of the greater population as well as to the financial community. However, some have had more dire negative implications – to both. Fresh from original and exhaustive research into the family ties, mentorships and other connections between US presidents and major US bankers since the establishment of the Federal Reserve, Nomi Prins tells a fascinating story of the evolution of American power and genealogy. She also explains how this led to establish policy and influence. Some of these connections will surprise you and give you food for thought about their nature and how they impact the world today.
