A conversation between ALI VELSHI, host of MSNBC’s “Velshi and Ruhle” and RICHARD VAGUE, philanthropist, former banker, current managing partner of Gabriel Investments, and author of A Brief History of Doom: Two Hundred Years of Financial Crises.

From the Great Depression to the economic downfall of 2008, financial crises have cycled through countries time and again leaving a trail of bad loans and broken banks in its wake. In his new book, Richard Vague, Philadelphia’s relentlessly curious modern day Ben Franklin, argues that such crises follow a pattern that makes them both predictable and avoidable. 

Join us for a special one-on-one conversation between Vague and MSNBC’s Velshi, and for drinks and light snacks at the brand new Fitler Club.
