"Too Big To Fail" is to be dicussed at New Haven Public Library Feb. 22

NEW HAVEN - The New Haven Public Library invites the public to meet author Emily Eisenlohr at 6 p.m. Feb. 22, "as she discusses the systemic risks posed by big banks," organizers said in a statement.
"Her recent book, 'Fairy Tale Capitalism: Fact and Fiction Behind Too Big To Fail,' explains how the biggest banks engineered a superhighway of risk by successfully lobbying for the removal of barriers between investment and commercial banking, and avoiding regulation of over-the-counter derivatives," the statement said.
 Eisenlohr "spent two decades in the financial sector as a corporate banking executive and a credit analyst for some of the biggest financial institutions in the U.S., including Citibank and Moody's Investors Service. She received an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago," the statement said. 
The discussion will take place at the downtown library, 133 Elm St. Free parking is available. For more information visit www.fairytalecapitalism.eventbrite.com or call the library at 203-946-8835.
