Your Call: What is the history of the relationship between US Presidents and bankers?
On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with journalist and author Nomi Prins about her new book, “All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power.” She writes, “Presidents no longer even try to garner banker support for population-friendly policies, and bankers operate oblivious to the needs of national economies. There is no counterbalance to their power.” How has the close relationship between US presidents and Wall Street affected banking policies? And what will it take to reform the US financial system? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
