Edward J. Balleisen - 'Fraud: An American History from Barnum to Madoff'

Swindlers, hucksters - American history is rife with those out to deceive. Edward Balleisen shares his new Fraud: An American History from Barnum to Madoff with us on Monday, April 24, at 7 pm.  Where is the line between aggressive business people and out-and-out con men?  The Associate Professor of History and Senior Fellow in the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University documents the relationship between deregulation and rises in fraud. Is what's good for business always good for consumers?  Join us for an always-timely subject.  In conversation with David Zonderman (NC State History Dept. Chair); Kevin Anderson (NC Senior Deputy Attorney General); and Brad Miller (former Raleigh Congressman).
