  • Emmy Award winner in 2004 for her work on “Exporting America,” an investigation into the impact of globalization on U.S. workers
  • Part of the coverage teams that earned CNN a George Foster Peabody and an Alfred I. duPont Award for their natural disaster coverages
  • Recipient of the Media Excellence Award for Business Reporting from The National Foundation for Women Legislators and the Greenlee School of Journalism’s 2009 James W. Schwartz award.

CNN’s chief business correspondent, Christine Romans, is a veteran reporter who delivers the day’s top business news every morning, nationwide. Not only is she an award-winning reporter known for her decades of trustworthy analysis of Wall Street and economic affairs, she is also a respected journalist who has also covered numerous monumental stories like the first democratic elections in Iraq, the AIG Bailout, and the collapse of Enron.

Known as CNN’s explainer-in-chief of all things money, Romans translates complicated international finance to understandable economics on her weekend show, “CNN Money.” She is an anchor on CNN’s “Early Start,” and has been responsible for several groundbreaking investigative pieces that are regularly featured on CNN International. In her various roles, she has extensively covered topics such as immigration reform, substance abuse, homeland security, American foreign policy, natural disasters, and corruption.

Romans is also the author of two books, both of which serve as entertaining tutorials for timely topics. Smart is the New Rich: Money Guide for Millenials teaches key financial strategies for the millennial generation and How to Speak Money (coauthored by Ali Velshi) examines how people think about money and the different techniques they can employ to gain control of their earnings while working towards financial independence and security.

PROGRAMS

As a financial and economic expert serving as Chief Business Correspondent for CNN, Christine Romans has investigated and reported on the American economy on a daily basis. In her talk, Economic Gut Check: Opportunities and Challenges in the Economic Recovery, she analyzes the current strength in the American economy and the challenges for businesses and consumers in a recovery that is not shared by everyone.

What will it take to restore confidence in corporate suites? Can Washington cure itself of dysfunction? Can the housing rebound withstand the coming higher mortgage rates? Will the Federal Reserve's withdrawal of stimulus help or hurt American businesses? How do these challenges and opportunities relate to you and your organization?

Romans will deconstruct these complex issues for audiences, just as she does with her popular "Romans' Numeral" segment on CNN programs. Audiences who wish to better understand the tangled intricacies of America’s economic malfunction and its difficult journey back from the brink of disaster will greatly benefit from Romans’ professional insight.

Smart Is the New Rich: If You Cant Afford It, Put It Down
A practical way to think about money today.

Author and CNN veteran money correspondent Christine Romans believes we should live by three qualifiers: living within our means, living with less debt, and being less vulnerable. While some may say this is old-fashioned, today it's hard to argue with Romans' view.

Smart is the New Rich explores how adopting a new approach to money can lead to a healthier financial lifestyle. Each chapter opens with a question about money to begin the conversation about earning, saving, spending, growing, and protecting your money. Using checklists and quizzes, Romans guides you through the "New Normal", helping you to think differently about your money and relearning good habits for prosperity.

Reexamines the money rules abandoned during the consumer bubble and poses the essential questions we should ask ourselves before spend our money.

Provides an interactive, step-by-step guide to all things money, from credit, debt, and savings to investing, taxes, and mortgages.

A companion Web site allows you to chat with other readers about jobs, mortgage rates, investing, and saving.

For 30 years, the financial rules for life revolved around abundant credit. That bubble has burst. Smart is the New Rich addresses why these rules no longer apply, and reveals what it will take to make the right money choices moving forward.

How to Speak Money: The Language and Knowledge You Need Now
Do you speak money? You should. It is the world's most important language. It's spoken everywhere. Speaking—or at least understanding—this language allows you to follow the real conversations in politics, business, and at work. Understanding money and speaking the language fluently is critical to preparing for a comfortable retirement, building a small business, or planning for college and a career for your children. Everyone speaks it differently, with different dialects. Some are riskier than others. Some want to save their money; others want to see it grow. There is no one accent, but understanding the differences will make couples, business partners, and coworkers happier and wealthier.

Authors and CNN financial experts Ali Velshi and Christine Romans speak the global language of money and translate it every day for hundreds of thousands of viewers. And they are here to teach you, too. It's easier to learn than you might think.

Speaking money affects every area of your life. It's more than simply your savings or the investments you may have. It involves the way you think about money, the way you teach your children about it, and the way you were taught about it yourself. It's about the way you spend it, save it, invest it, use it, need it and want it.

This book will:

  • Shed light on male and female spending and investing disparity
  • Discuss emerging international economies
  • Weigh the financial hurdle of student debt culminating in a successful job
  • Explain how to budget wisely and build wealth
  • Show how to plan appropriately for retirement
  • How to Speak Money is an easy-listening, practical book that helps readers become fluent in the world's most universal language.
