Cracking the Money Code

Lewis’ new book, Flash Boys: Cracking the Money Code returns to Wall Street to lay bare the biggest new story since the crash. With the world’s money now traded by computer code, a dark world of high-frequency trading exists. It’s a landscape of cunning, secrecy, and barely measurable milliseconds of speed, in which the stock exchange itself has become complicit in its own corruption. Join us to hear the man Tom Wolfe calls ‘probably the best current writer in America’ for an evening of riveting insight and discussion. “I read Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I’ll never play like that. But it’s good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like.” Malcolm Gladwell
