Media Roundtable: Former banker Nomi Prins says central bankers are still rigging the economy

Sep 20, 2018


On this edition of Your Call, former investment banker Nomi Prins discusses her new book, Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World.

Prins argues that since the global financial crisis, big banks have massively profited from access to cheap money. She writes, "No significant regulations have been introduced to fix the structural problems behind the last financial crisis. Banks and the markets have been subsidized by conjured-money policy." She calls it a heist that enables the most powerful banks and central bankers to run the world. Ten years after the 2008 financial crisis, how can this rigged system be dismantled?
