On Thursday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m., [email protected] Library will present New York Times best-selling author and economic policy expert Steve Forbes.

Mr. Forbes, a two-time presidential candidate, will discuss his new book, Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy — and What We Can Do About It, co-authored with Elizabeth Ames, in the Cole Auditorium. Seating is limited.

Few topics are as misunderstood today as the subject of money. In Money, Mr. Forbes and Ms. Ames present what critics have called a compelling — and controversial — argument about why a return to a sound dollar and a new gold standard are vital to a healthy global economy. Mr. Forbes outlines several different forms a gold standard could take in today’s global economy and shares invaluable suggestions for how to preserve wealth and where to invest money now.

Mr. Forbes’ talk will inform patrons interested in his opinions on the causes and implications of the current turbulence in worldwide markets and what can be done to bring about a stable and prosperous global economy, reduce unemployment and economic inequality, and increase entrepreneurship.

According to Greta Van Susteren, host of On the Record on Fox News, “Economic and monetary policies can be difficult to master for even the savviest politicians…Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames deliver a gripping read and an intriguing viewpoint on how to get our economy back on track.”

Mr. Forbes, son of the legendary Malcolm Forbes, is co-author of the New York Times best-seller Power Ambition Glory and Wall Street Journal best-seller How Capitalism Will Save Us. Forbes is chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media, which publishes Forbes magazine. Under Mr. Forbes’ leadership, the company has launched a variety of new publications and businesses, reaching millions of decision makers worldwide, both online and in print.

[email protected] is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library board of trustees and contributions by generous donors.

Books will be available for purchase and signing through Diane’s Books. This series is open to all at no charge, but seating in the Cole Auditorium is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
