As this coming autumn coincides with the tenth anniversary of the financial crisis, Prins is very much in demand. Her senior-level international banking, advisory, and speaking experience, coupled with her multiple books on the topics, have all been very well-received by the international academic and professional community. Her books deal with the historical developments and underpinnings of international finance, economics and geo-politics, and where the three intersect. Her new book Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World explores critical themes and events from the global financial crisis. It also provides prescriptive guidance with which to understand and navigate current global financial complexities and dynamics.

Nomi Prins is an independent journalist, author of seven books, and an engaging, captivating, and extremely knowledgeable speaker. Prins is widely sought-after for her unique perspective that crosses the divide between politics, finance, and the economy. She is the author of the recent book, Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World, which was selected as a Best Business and Leadership Book of 2018 by Amazon. Her last book All the Presidents’ Bankers explored the relationships between presidents and bankers over the past century and the impact on domestic and foreign policy. Her other acclaimed books include: It Takes a Pillage, Other People’s Money—which predicted the current financial crisis and was chosen as a Best Book of 2004 by The Economist, Barron's, and The Library Journal—Jacked, and Black Tuesday, a historical novel about the 1929 crash.
