Steve Forbes is coming to Delta State tonight.
The Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media is Delta State’s Spring 2019 Colloquium Distinguished Lecturer, and he’ll deliver a lecture titled “In Money We Trust? The American Dollar and Your Everyday Life”.
Forbes’ lecture will discuss a movie that he produced, also named “In Money We Trust”, which is based on a book that he wrote. The film examines money’s role in day-to-day life and how important it is to have “trustworthy money.”
“The bottom line is, when money is trustworthy, we move forward,” Forbes said. “When money is untrustworthy, which has been a plague of modern times, we have problems – economically and socially. Money should be as stable as 12 inches in a foot and 60 minutes in an hour, but when politicians start mucking with it bad things happen.”
Forbes will speak at Jobe Hall Auditorium at 6 p.m., and the event is free and open to the public.
