Evening Lecture Series

"In Money We Trust?" Film Screening, Followed by Conversation with Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames
Monday, November 11, 2019 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Join us for a screening of the award-winning film, In Money We Trust?, followed by a conversation with Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames, co-authors of the book MONEY: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens The Global Economy — and What We Can Do About It, on which the film is based. In Money We Trust? is an illuminating one-hour public television documentary that answers the question, “what is money?” In a narrative that begins in ancient times and takes us to the present day, the film explains how, 2,500 years ago, the invention of money provided a shared measure of value that facilitated trade and cooperation between strangers. The program also explores the destructive consequences that ensue when inflation or other forms of instability cause money not to be trusted.

Screening followed by fireside chat, Q&A and reception. Admission $25; MoAF members free. This event will be held at Fordham University, 140 West 62nd Street, McNally Amphitheatre, NYC. Register today.
