On March 1, 2018, the GNCE hosted Jack Ewing, from The New York Times, who has reported extensively on the Volkswagen emissions scandal. Ewing is the author of Faster, Higher, Farther (W.W. Norton, 2017), which tells the story of the VW scandal. In his lecture to a packed house, Ewing discussed the history of Volkswagen, and he told the story of how researchers first discovered that the company was cheating on emissions tests. He joined the Center students and fellows for discussion over dinner, and also held a book signing after the lecture.
