Michael Bloomberg, the self-made billionaire turned mayor, challenged the belief that businessmen make inept politicians and that charisma is a prerequisite for the job. Joyce Purnick's new biography, Mike Bloomberg: Money, Power, Politics, illuminates the man behind the public persona. She and others join the Center for New York City Affairs for a conversation about how Bloomberg and his money have reshaped the mayoralty, remade city politics, and upended notions of independent urban leadership.Speakers include: Joyce Purnick, author, Mike Bloomberg: Money, Power, Politics; Adam Lisberg, City Hall Bureau Chief, New York Daily News; Doug Muzzio, Professor, Baruch College School of Public Affairs; and moderator Glenn Thrush, senior congressional reporter, Politico.com.Supported by the Sirus Fund and the Milano Foundation.moreless
