October 13th, 2022 – Breaking Down the Story: Who & What is Behind the Smash-and-Grab Economy?

Join the New York Financial Writers' Association for a discussion about Mother Jones' cover story “The Smash-and-Grab Economy: Private equity billionaires are looting the country, leaving everyday Americans to clean up the mess —and fight for the scraps" and “Real Estate Predators Tried to Cash In on the Pandemic. Then Tenants Fought Back."

Hannah Levintova (@H_Lev), a reporter for Mother Jones, will discuss how she went about researching, will discuss her strategy for covering the opaque world of high finance, how she managed to dissect the true business strategies of PE firms, how she got those impacted by these strategies to speak out and what she learned about the outcome of private equity activities on Brooklyn neighborhoods -and possibly your neighborhood too!   

Peter Coy (@petercoy), a member of the NYFWA's board of governors and a New York Times Opinion economic writer, will moderate the event. 

When: Thursday, October 13th at 7 p.m. ET

RSVPs Mandatory
