Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes acclaimed author and journalist Paddy Hirsch to the store to celebrate the publication of Man vs. Markets on Wednesday, September 12th at 7 p.m.
Do we really understand the terms and acronyms that make up the language of economics? Paddy Hirsch - senior producer at APM's Marketplace and acknowledged Whiteboard Guru - is here to help us crack the code. In Man vs. Markets, he proves that it's not impossible to understand what's going on in the glass-and-steel canyons of Wall Street; that most international financial transactions aren't all that different from those taking place every day in stores, in car dealerships, and on Main Street.
Paddy Hirsch is a senior producer at American Public Media's business radio program, Marketplace. He is the creator of the acclaimed and popular Marketplace Whiteboard, which was a Webby honoree in 2009, and has been featured on network and public broadcast television. He recently completed a Knight Fellowship in Journalism at Stanford University. He lives in Los Angeles.
