Wall Street Career
Before she became a renowned journalist and public speaker, Nomi Prins was in the upper tiers of the financial world.

The time she spent on Wall Street as an insider allowed her to learn about the unethical practices that were prevalent in the banking industry. After working in the belly of the beast for many years, she made her exit and decided to pursue a career as an investigative journalist to shed light on the ways that financial systems are corrupted to benefit an elite few at the expense of other people, or what’s often called, “main street.”
Nomi Prins’ Books
Nomi has a couple of books under her belt mostly covering how the financial system works. They are:
Permanent Distortion is Nomi’s latest book and she even promoted it at her latest event. The goal of this book is to educate readers on the chasm that exists between the financial markets and the economy. She argues that the financial markets abandoned the real economy forever. To be fair to Nomi, this is not the first time she is talking about this as she has been covering this topic via her speaking gigs around the world. She has also been trying to provide people with actionable ways to deal with the situation.
Nomi’s book, Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World, explores how central banks consolidated power and gained control of the financial system.
It is her latest best-selling book and inside, she explores the conditions that laid the foundation for the rise of the new era of central banks’ power and the impact those institutions have on markets and the global economy.
