“A disturbing and painstakingly researched account of how the banks wrenched control of government and society out of our hands—and what we can do to seize it back” is how Bill Moyers summed up economist Simon Johnson’s latest book, 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown. Johnson, who was chief economist for the International Monetary Fund from March 2007-August 2008, will be in Santa Barbara to speak about his book as part of UCSB’s Arts & Lectures series Aftermath: The Financial Crisis and Our Evolving Economic Future. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The free event takes place Tuesday, February 15, at 8 p.m. at UCSB’s Campbell Hall.
