“The Matterhorn Interview – April 2015: Nomi Prins”
“The World is in Play”
Podcast interview: (20 mins)
We are extremely pleased to feature Nomi Prins again this month in a podcast interview from Lars Schall. In the wake of this month’s release of a Paperback version of her highly recommended bestseller “All The Presidents’ Bankers”, featuring 2014/2015 updates, she talks about the latest developments in finance and geopolitics, such as: the strength of the US dollar; the Chinese-lead Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; the relationship between Wall Street and the City of London; and the planned free-trade zones in Asia and Europe with the United States.
Trailer of “All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power” exposes a century of tight relationships and interdependence between America’s past 19 presidents (from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama) and key bankers (from J.P. Morgan to Jamie Dimon.)
Nomi Prins, who grew up in the US state of New York, worked after her studies in mathematics and statistics for Chase Manhattan, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns in London and as a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs on Wall Street. After she left the financial industry in 2001/02, she became an outstanding financial journalist who has written by now five books including: “It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bailout, Bonuses, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street,” that was published in September 2009 by Wiley. Furthermore, she is a Senior Fellow at “Demos” in New York City, gave numerous interviews to international outlets such as BBC World, BBC, Russia Today, CNN, CNBC, CSPAN and Fox, and her articles appear in The New York Times, Fortune, The Nation, The American Prospect and The Guardian in Britain.
