The Bankers' New Clothes

Anat Admati argues that we can have a safer and healthier banking system without sacrificing any of its benefits, and at essentially no cost to society. Anat seeks to engage the broader public in the debate by cutting through the jargon of banking, clearing the fog of confusion, and presenting the issues in simple and accessible terms.

"Do the Math" with Bill McKibben and Chris Mooney

From protests against the Keystone XL pipeline to his "Do the Math" tour, to rallying of college students to call for their universities to divest from fossil fuel companies, McKibben now speaks for a mass movement of concerned people.

Bill McKibben is an author and environmentalist. His 1989 book "The End of Nature" is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages. Bill is founder of, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement. Bill was the 2013 winner of the Gandhi Prize and the Thomas Merton Prize. Foreign Policy named Bill to their inaugural list of the world's 100 most important global thinkers, and the Boston Globe said Bill was "probably America's most important environmentalist." Bill lives in the mountains above Lake Champlain with his wife, the writer Sue Halpern.
