Publisher's Summary

Bob talks to Michael Lewis about high frequency trading on Wall Street. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Justice Department is investigating high speed trading, saying it rigs the market. Michael Lewis explains how this relatively new, shadowy industry operates, and the efforts of a handful of traders to rein it in, in his new book, Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt.

Then, for the past 18 years, photographer Robert Dawson traveled the United States cataloguing hundreds of public libraries. His book, The Public Library: A Photographic Essay, combines his pictures with essays about our library system from America’s best writers and public thinkers. Joining Dawson to talk with Bob about the state of this American institution is Luis Herrera, director of San Francisco Public Library. [Broadcast Date: April 16, 2014]
