In 2009, with the dust yet to settle on the financial crisis, a mild-mannered Wharton grad set in motion a fraud of unprecedented gall and magnitude involving billions of dollars of Malaysian Government money. Billion Dollar Whale is the definitive account of the fraud perpetrated by Jho Low, the man who fooled Wall Street, Hollywood, and the world. Wall Street Journal reporters Tom Wright and Bradley Hope, who uncovered the magnitude of the scandal, tell the story of the massive financial fraud that led to the fall of the government of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier this year.
On 4 October, Pulitzer finalist Tom Wright will join Aaron Connelly, Director of the Lowy Institute’s Southeast Asia Project, for a conversation about the 1MDB scandal and the political implications for Malaysia, Southeast Asia, and the world of finance.
