Jews You Should Know

May 16, 2018


The son of an Ivy League professor with an early penchant for Wall Street investing, Greg Zuckerman never imagined he would one day be writing about stocks and not trading them. But through a circuitous series of personal events - including stints planning banking conferences, organizing college campus tours and writing for an obscure financial trade journal - he eventually found his unique calling.

Zuckerman has spent a career breaking stories, profiling colorful characters - including Donald Trump and Bernie Madoff - and demanding integrity in a beleaguered industry. He has also published fascinating books, together with his teenage son, focused on today's greatest athletes and the adversity they have conquered on their roads to achievement.

Enjoy this week's conversation with a passionate and accomplished journalist at the world's financial paper of record.
