Anchor, Closing Bell
Anchor and Managing Editor, The Wall Street Journal Report
Inspired by The Atlantic's enduring partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival, the third-annual Washington Ideas Forum gathers an audience of 600 people, including government officials, top business executives, global thought leaders, academics, and celebrities. It is the place to hear - and meet - the most prominent thinkers of our time.
This October 5 and 6, the Forum will once again bring the best and brightest to the table for debate, conversation, and idea-sharing.
Maria Bartiromo is anchor of CNBC’s “Closing Bell” and anchor and managing editor of the nationally syndicated “Wall Street Journal Report,” the most watched financial news program in America. In 1995, Bartiromo became the first journalist to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on a daily basis. She has covered Wall Street for 20 years and has won two Emmy Awards. Bartiromo is the author of several books, including The Weekend That Changed Wall Street, and The 10 Laws of Enduring Success. Bartiromo writes a monthly column for USA TODAY.
Rex Tillerson is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ExxonMobil.
ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson tells Maria Bartiromo that the oil and gas industry operates under the same tax code as other industries and, in light of the investments needed to develop natural resources, defends the industry's large cash reserves.
Not that I expect the CEO of Exxon to be honest, but this man is a liar. He is intentionally withholding the truth about health and environmental problems associated with his fossil fuels because if the general public knew the truth, his company would have to start spending a portion of its immense profits on environmental protections and studies. For the ruling class of the capitalist oligarchy that is blasphemy!
