Financial Blogger Daryl Montgomery to Interview Best Selling Author William Cohan at the New York Investing Meetup

New York, NY (PressExposure) April 28, 2009 -- Cohan's book deals with the collapse of Bear Stearns, which the New York Investing meetup was the first major organization to predict.

“House of Cards – A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street”, recently number 3 on the New York Times Best Seller list, is about the 2008 financial meltdown and the factors that led to the collapse of Bear Stearns in March of that year. Making one of his rare personal appearances at the New York Investing meetup is especially appropriate for Cohan since it was the first major organization to predict Bear Stearns demise in August 2007.

Prior to writing “House of Cards”, William Cohan spent 17 years on Wall Street as an investment banker. He is also the author of “The Last Tycoons”, which was also a New York Times bestseller and won the 2007 FT/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. Cohan writes for the Financial Times, the New York Times, Washington Post and is a contributor on MSNBC.

Montgomery, a former academic who is now a full-time trader, is also the organizer of the 2200 member New York Investing meetup. His blog keeps the public informed on the ongoing events of the Credit Crisis as they unfold. In addition to sponsoring the ‘Helicopter Economics Investing Guide’ and its monthly meetings, the New York Investing meetup also produces online videos and offers investing classes. The group’s purpose is to provide the average investor with unbiased financial and economic education. It has no connection to any Wall Street firm. The group’s members have made money in stocks since the bear market began, while others have seen their portfolios cut in half.

The May 5th meeting is open to the public and will take place in Manhattan at PS 41, 116 West 11th St from 6:45 to 8:45PM. There is a $5 admission charge. “House of Cards” will be available for purchase and Mr. Cohen will be signing his books after the interview. An online RSVP is requested, but not required.
