Financial Firms & Economic Crisis
The Irene & Bernard L. Schwartz Lecture


Greg SmithGreg Smith, former Vice President at Goldman Sachs and author of New York Times Bestseller, "Why I Left Goldman Sachs", will discuss how banks behave behind the scenes and how those practices differ from the perception they convey to the public in SCEPA's annual Irene & Bernard L. Schwartz Lecture.

Wolff Conference Room, 6 E. 16th Street, The New School

Smith’s controversial New York Times op-ed, which announced his resignation to the world after 12 years at the investment bank, publicly criticized the firm’s business culture and risky investments. 

His lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with Marianne LeNabat, a New School student active in the Occupy Wall Street movement, and Jeff Madrick, author and financial journalist, who is a Senior Fellow with SCEPA.
