From the financial to the agricultural, Lewis explores "Why Fixing Wall Street and the Economy is Critical to the World" in his discussion at Bard College on Tuesday, February 19.

Alongside his wife, Lewis, a former Wall Street investment banker and consultant, currently owns and operates Lewis Family Farm—the nation's only certified USDA organic, grass-fed beef farm—in Essex, New York.

Lewis is joined by Matt Taibbi, Bard alumnus and political and financial columnist for Rolling Stone. The discussion moderator is Roger Berkowitz, academic director of Bard's Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities. Following the talk, Lewis holds a question-and-answer session.

The lecture is free, open to the public, and takes place in room 103 of Bard's Reem-Kayden Science Building at 7pm.
