Adelphi University’s Finance Society will host a book discussion Monday with Suzanne McGee, author of a book titled “Chasing Goldman Sachs”.

The event will take place at 1 p.m. in room 109 of Adelphi’s Hagedorn Hall of Enterprise at 1 South Ave. on the Garden City campus. 

Due to limited space, pre-registration is required. 

The book's subtitle adds a bit more on McGee's perspective: "How the Masters of the Universe Melted Wall Street Down . . . And Why They'll Take Us to the Brink Again."

In the book, McGee “provides an incisive look at the forces that transformed Wall Street from its traditional role as a capital-generating and economy-boosting engine into a self-serving structure on a destructive spiral,” an Adelphi news release says. 

“As banking undergoes its biggest revolution since the 1929 crash and the Great Depression, Ms. McGee illustrates where it stands today and points to where it needs to go next...” 

McGee is a contributing editor for Barron’s, after more than 13 years as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal in Toronto, New York, and London. 

She is a Loeb Award winner for a multimedia series on consumer culture in China. 

To register for or learn more about this event, please contact Finance Society Advisor Michael Driscoll at (516) 877-4622 or mdriscoll@adelphi.edu. The society is part of the student community at Adelphi’s School of Business.
