Jesse Eisinger, senior reporter and editor of Propublica, came to NYU Stern for a discussion about his new book, The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives, with Professor Paul Zarowin. Stern alumni and students filled the room for an engaging conversation about the pervasiveness of corporate crime that goes unpunished, and what can be done to curb it.
Eisinger offered a look into how we got to this point and extended the discussion to the Mueller investigation, explaining how the book would have covered current headlines.
Alumni Council Member Phil Nuzhdin (BS ’12) welcomed the speakers and kicked off the evening with introductory remarks. After the discussion and a lively Q&A session, guests enjoyed a reception and book signing with Eisinger.
Watch here as Eisinger argues that the failure to prosecute white collar crime is a threat to democracy.
