Financial Crisis: The Bailout
Criticizing the Federal Government
As this coming autumn coincides with the 10th anniversary of the financial crisis, Nomi is very much in demand. Her senior level international banking, advisory and speaking experience, coupled with her multiple books on the topic have all been very well received by the international academic and professional community. Her books deal with the historical developments and underpinnings of international finance, economics and geo-politics, and where the three intersect. Her new book ‘Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World’ explores critical themes and events since the financial crisis globally. It also provides guidance and prescriptive with which to understand and navigate current global financial complexities and dynamics.
The post-crisis, zero-interest rate world has catalyzed seismic shifts in super power hierarchies and international trade alignments that will have major ramifications for decades to come. In the space provided by Federal Reserve and ECB monetary policy, for instance, the BRICS, lead by CHINA, have been coordinating foreign direct investment, financial market activities, and long-term projects in unprecedented ways. Nomi has been traveling the world researching this shift from the ground up. Forget what you read in international papers, Nomi will address your organization through her distinguished first-hand experience, not sugar-coated punditry. She reveals how the rise of a New World impacts your investments, business decisions, and strategies.
In this speech, Nomi will focus her considerable experience and analysis on the complex issues underlying inherent global and national volatility and instability that neither the main stream media, federal agencies nor governments want you to know -- or even understand themselves. What you should do for protection? This talk is critical for all professionals charged with investing, monitoring accounting practices, compliance, legality and risk.
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.
Power is about more than wealth, capitalism vs. socialism or communism. Rather, it's about the ties, strategic alliances and partnerships that transcend the worlds of Wall Street and the White House. Based on original and exhaustive research into the family ties, vast history and deep connections between US presidents and major US bankers since the establishment of the Federal Reserve, Prins reveals the evolution of American power domestically, and its ongoing ramifications on the international community from the US to Brazil, China to Japan, the United Kingdom to Mexico and Europe to the Middle East. She explains how historical interactions that shaped today’s policies, influenced leaders and fashioned the geo-political environment we have today. These connections will surprise you and offer insights on alliances that impact our rapidly evolving financial, economic and geo-political world.
