UIC Alumni Authors Series begins October 13 with book talk about homeownership

John Wasik, UIC alumnus (LAS ’78, MA ’88), personal finance columnist for Bloomberg News, and author of 13 books about business and economics, talks about his book The Cul de Sac Syndrome on Tuesday, October 13, at 4 pm, in the Daley Library Reserve Reading Room. Wasik examines the growing financial, ecological and social costs brought about by the pursuit of homeownership. How did 23 million home owing families become “financially insecure,” and how can Americans regain prosperity and happiness?

Wasik, a former special projects editor for Consumers Digest magazine, has won 18 awards for his columns and investigative reporting, including the National Press Club award for Consumer Journalism. He has contributed to Reader's Digest, The New York Times, Modern Maturity, Parade, Smart Money, Popular Science, Health, Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Barron's, The Chicago Tribune, and newspapers across North America.
