Corporate control of public policy and what citizens can do about it will be the topic of a talk by political commentator David Sirota at Rochester Institute of Technology Oct. 13.
Sirota is the author of The New York Times bestselling books The Uprising and Hostile Takeover and a nationally syndicated columnist. Sirota previously served as an aide to United States Sen. Bernard Sanders and Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer.
His presentation at RIT will focus on the current state of the U.S. economy, the impact of economic policy on addressing the problems faced and the growing populist tide of dissent from both the left and the right that is increasingly driving political and economic decision making.
A book signing will follow the event, which is free and open to the public.
WHAT: A Discussion of U.S. Economic Policy

WHEN: 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 13
