Prof. Mihir A. Desai, RCC at Harvard Executive Session, The Harvard Faculty Club, 2016.
“Most ambitiously, this book endeavors to improve the practice of finance by rediscovering the humanity of the core ideas of finance. The demonization of finance is counterproductive, and regulation, while helpful, holds only limited promise for addressing the transformation of finance into an extractive, rather than a value-creating industry. Perhaps we can all find our way back to a more noble profession by enlivening the ideas of finance through stories that illuminate our lives and our work”
