Prominent Trial Attorney, Jack Girardi, Ptr Girardi Keese, and Producer Steve Murphy interview award winning Author Jeff Madrick on his new book, Age of Greed, The Triumph of Finance and the Decline of America, 1970-Present .

Jeff has appeared on Charlie Rose, the Lehrer News Hour, Now with Bill Moyers, Frontline, C-Span, Book Notes, CNN, CNBC, CBS, BBC, and NPR.  He has also served as a policy consultant and speech writer for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and other U.S. legislatorsJeff is a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books, and a former economics columnist for The New York Times. He is editor of Challenge Magazine, visiting professor of humanities at The Cooper Union, and senior fellow at the Roosevelt Institute and the for Economic Policy Analysis, The New School.  His last book, The Case for Big Government (Princeton), was named one of two 2009 PEN Galbraith Non-Fiction Award Finalists.   

He is also the author of Taking America (Bantam, 1987), and The End of Affluence (Random House, 1995), both of which were New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Taking America was chosen by Business Week as one of the ten best books of the year. His book,  Why Economies Grow (Basic Books/Century Foundation, 2002), emphasized the need for active public investment and a broader understanding of the causes of growth than was popular in academia at the time.  He has written for many other publications over the years,  including The Post, The Times, Institutional Investor, The Nation, American Prospect, The Globe, Newsday, and the business, op-ed, and the Sunday magazine sections of The New York Times.  He is a regular blogger for The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast.

The Age of Greed is a fascinating and deeply disturbing tale of hypocrisy, corruption, and insatiable greed. But more than that, it's a much-needed reminder of just how we got into the mess we're in-a reminder that is greatly needed when we are still being told that greed is good.  As Jeff Madrick makes clear in a narrative at once sweeping, fast-paced, and incisive, the single-minded pursuit of huge personal wealth has been on the rise in the United States since the 1970s, led by a few individuals who have argued that self-interest guides society more effectively than community concerns. These stewards of American capitalism have insisted on the central and essential place of accumulated wealth through the booms, busts, and recessions of the last half century, giving rise to our current woes. Intense economic inequity and instability is the story of our age, and Jeff Madrick tells it with style, clarity, and an unerring command of his subject.
