Matthew Bishop discusses his new book, The Road from Ruin: How to Revive Capitalism and Put America Back on Top, and shares his thoughts on the economy and capitalism’s future.  His scheduled visit in April was postponed when Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull halted travel.

Bishop, the U.S. business editor for The Economist, says we should learn from past financial crises to map the way to a reformed 21st century capitalism.

Bishop’s presentation is co-sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. His book will be available for sale.
