Andrew Ross Sorkin, editor of The New York Times‘s Dealbook blog and author of the book Too Big to Fail, spoke to students on February 8 as part of the Gabelli School’s International Business Week.
Sorkin, who also is the Times‘s chief mergers and acquisitions reporter, is a leading voice about Wall Street and corporate America. New York Magazine described him as “the most famous financial journalist of his generation.” His bestselling book, which has since spawned a film version, is a moment-by-moment account of the 2008 financial crisis. Sorkin reconstucts the turmoil that rocked nations and markets around the world, writing his account of meetings from South Korea to Russia to the halls of Congress in Washington, D.C. Published in 2009, Too Big to Fail was named one of the best books of the year by The Economist, The Financial Times and Business Week.
Sorkin is one of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders. His accolades include a Gerald Loeb Award, the highest honor in business journalism, for breaking news, and the 2010 Loeb Award for best business book. He also is a two-time winner of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers award for breaking news. His Dealbook blog provides interviews, analysis, and news about mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, private equity transactions, and venture capital deals.
