About the Event

The Brown Club of New York invites you to join a conversation with Bloomberg reporter and author, Susan Berfield '86, and her editor, Ben Hyman ’11, as they discuss Teddy Roosevelt’s brinkmanship facing J.P. Morgan and the monopolies scoffing at government oversight. In her new book, Berfield reveals what links a president, a banker, a national emergency brought on by a coal strike, a groundbreaking railroad antitrust case, and a public enthralled with a leader who cares about them. With colorful detail, Berfield traces Roosevelt’s unexpected rise to power and his fight for democracy at a time of dramatic imbalance of wealth between the titans of industry and the majority of Americans, discovering unexpected parallels to the country today.
