‘Money for Nothing’ looks inside the Federal Reserve; panel discussion to follow
MILWAUKEE – Marquette’s College of Business Administration on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, will provide a free, public screening of the award-winning documentary Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve. The showing, which will be followed by a panel discussion, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Weasler Auditorium, 1506 W. Wisconsin Ave.
Narrated by acclaimed actor Liev Schreiber, the film is the first to take viewers inside America’s central bank and reveal the impact of Fed policies – past, present and future – on American lives. As Chairman Ben Bernanke’s tenure comes to a close, Paul Volcker, Janet Yellen and many of the world’s best financial minds debate the decisions that led the global economy to the brink of collapse.
Following the film, industry experts Jim Bianco, president of Bianco Research, and Tom Digenan, head of U.S. equities at UBS, will discuss the impact of the Fed and other issues addressed in the film. Dr. Joe Daniels, chair and professor of economics, will moderate the discussion.
The event is sponsored by Marquette’s Center for Global and Economic Studies and the Applied Investment Management program and Bianco Research.
