"A fascinating new perspective on modern finance," --Oliver Hart, 2016 Nobel Laureate in Economics

"Lucid, witty and delightfully erudite...From the French revolution to film noir, from the history of probability to Jane Austen and The Simpsons, this is an astonishing intellectual feast." --Sebastian Mallaby, author of The Man Who Knew: The Life and Times of Alan Greenspan

In 1688, essayist Josef de la Vega described finance as both “the fairest and most deceitful business . . . the noblest and the most infamous in the world, the finest and most vulgar on earth.”

The characterization of finance as deceitful, infamous, and vulgar still rings true today – particularly in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. But, what happened to the fairest, noblest, and finest profession that de la Vega saw? 

De la Vega hit on an essential truth that has been forgotten: finance can be just as principled, life-affirming, and worthy as it can be fraught with questionable practices.  Today, finance is shrouded in mystery for outsiders, while many insiders are uneasy with the disrepute of their profession.  How can finance become more accessible and also recover its nobility?

Harvard Business School professor Mihir Desai, in his “last lecture” to the graduating Harvard MBA class of 2015, took up the cause of restoring humanity to finance. With incisive wit and irony, his lecture drew upon a rich knowledge of literature, film, history, and philosophy to explain the inner workings of finance in a manner that has never been seen before.

This book captures Desai’s lucid exploration of the ideas of finance as seen through the unusual prism of the humanities. Through this novel, creative approach, Desai shows that outsiders can access the underlying ideas easily and insiders can reacquaint themselves with the core humanity of their profession.

The mix of finance and the humanities creates unusual pairings: Jane Austen and Anthony Trollope are guides to risk management; Jeff Koons becomes an advocate of leverage; and Mel Brooks’s The Producers teaches us about fiduciary responsibility. In Desai’s vision, the principles of finance also provide answers to critical questions in our lives. Among many surprising parallels, bankruptcy teaches us how to react to failure, the lessons of mergers apply to marriages, and the Capital Asset Pricing Model demonstrates the true value of relationships.
THE WISDOM OF FINANCE is a wholly unique book, offering a refreshing new perspective on one of the world’s most complex and misunderstood professions.

MIHIR DESAI: Well, I hate to be cheekyTo some degree people see that today with educationWhat it ends up engendering is lots more optionalityThe book undersells itself, claiming to use a range of novels, movies, music, TV shows, philosophy and history to better understand and illuminate financeSep 26, 2016 Articles yahoo finance Mihir Desai Sep 26, 2016 Articles yahoo finance Mihir Desai Sep 15, 2016 Articles yahoo finance Mihir Desai Sep 15, 2016 Articles yahoo finance Mihir Desai Harvard study singles out a game-changing economic opportunity Sep 15, 2016 Articles yahoo finance Mihir Desai Sep 15, 2016 Articles yahoo finance Mihir Desai by Nicole Sinclair in Yahoo FinanceIf theres one issue that politicians could take on that would have overnight economic impact, its corporate tax reformBut that is just one example of that story really capturing how finance can actually be quite powerful and quite life-affirmingApproaching marriage as a long term investment, in a fashion, circumstances depending; may well be interpreted, via a certain lens, as necessarySARAH GREEN CARMICHAEL: Right

SARAH GREEN CARMICHAEL: It seems like one of the big stumbling blocks for people, and that leads to the kind of caricature you see of Wall Street like Wolf of Wall Street or Bonfire of the Vanities and American Psycho and those kinds of portrayals is the compensation structure and amountAnd real life provides more than its fair share of these financial archetypesfor instance, Martin ShkreliHighly recommend toBut theyll understand themSo thats a way of saying A, the French public finance system in the 18th century is a complete mess, because they misunderstand insuranceLike the oldest bank that we know of is in SienaSo theres no entryA text the NPR crowd would like to think of as accessible (oh, I read those books too I "get" it), but for those of a broader mindscapeYou mentioned the Wolf of Wall Street or Gordon Gekko or whoever 07f867cfac
