Description:

Headliners, March Edition:
The Curious Culture of Wall Street

Fat Wall Street bonuses are back in the news, with reports of staggering compensation packages for the very people who helped cause the nation's financial collapse.

While the average American worker faces frozen wages, furloughs, plundered retirement funds, and double-digit unemployment, top Wall Street producers stand to reap millions.

In the midst of the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression, how can investment bankers believe they deserve such princely pay packets? How did short-term shareholder value become such a short-sighted corporate goal? Does today's financial crisis differ from past boom and bust cycles? And what would it take to instigate meaningful reform?

On March 4, join anthropology professor and former investment banker Karen Ho, author of Liquidated: An Ethnography of Wall Street, as she provides a fascinating portrait of the curious culture of Wall Street.
