Today’s guest is renowned investigative journalist, geo-economic financial expert, best selling author and international speaker, Nomi Prins. This is not Nomi’s first appearance on London Real, some of you may remember that she joined me back in 2019 as we discussed her pessimistic outlook for the future, as financial institutions had failed to reform since the last crisis back in 2008. Safe to say, few of us could have foreseen what was going to happen across the world in the years since passed.
Nomi is truly one of the leading analysts in the game and an absolute authority on all aspects of the economy and its ramifications. Fresh from college, Nomi worked at Chase Manhattan Bank before spending seven years at Bear Stearns here in the City of London. Nomi subsequently held the lofty position of Managing Director at Goldman Sachs before becoming disillusioned with Wall Street and its unethical practices and overt greed.
Nomi was determined to forge a new path and expose the ways that financial systems are manipulated to serve the interests of an elite few. By becoming an investigative journalist, Nomi could leverage her unparalleled firsthand knowledge of the financial industry to reveal the truth and go some way to help the disillusioned masses who lie at the heart of the story.
Over the years Nomi has become a first port of call for the BBC, CNN, CNBC, Fox and PBS, while her thoughts regularly appear in a wide variety of publications from The New York Times and Forbes, to The Guardian among others.
Nomi is regularly sought out by governments and policy institutes as they look to instigate reform around various financial and banking issues, while she also features on the advisory boards of ExposeFacts, the Elephant Project, and Ethical Markets.
Nomi’s greatest success however has come as an author where her books are a regular fixture on the bestseller lists. In 2014, Nomi penned the acclaimed All The Presidents’’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power which took an in depth look at how an elite group of men transformed the American economy and government, dictated foreign and domestic policy, and shaped world history.
In 2018, Nomi’s blistering exposé Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World, lifted the lid on how and why the 2008 financial crisis served to reinforce the influence of central bankers and triggered a massive shift in the world order. The level of attention to detail and the forthright solutions Nomi serves up, are an antidote to the carefree, ego driven world of central banking and the Wall St. mob.
Nomi’s a welcome guest, not least because the global economy is seemingly spiralling out of control. As inflation takes root and the cost of living crisis is set to bite harder with winter on the horizon, Nomi offers a wealth of knowledge and understanding, alongside some very practical advice and the kind of straight talk that will go a long way to helping all of you understand exactly what is happening in the world of finance right now.
Nomi’s latest book, Permanent Distortion: How the Financial Markets Abandoned the Real Economy Forever, looks at the ever-growing wedge between the financial markets and the real economy. Nomi examines the fallout of this most recent financial crisis in the wake of the pandemic, one that has forged deeper divisions, chaos and unprecedented disruption for people all over the world.
