The Year of  2008 has been a historic year in terms of infrastructural changes that U S banks, financial institutions had gone through  and dire effect they had on  global economy.   In some respect it resembles to great depression in some others to the end of the second world war.  Some compare it with 1989 collapse of  communism some others look at it as a financial equivalent of September 11 2001. What happened,  why it happened, What are the diagnosis? These and some other issues regarding personal financial planning will be discussed in our next gathering.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
