Business and Humanities: Discovering the Human Side of Business in the Age of Globalization draws a clear connection between humanities and successful business practice by helping students explore the essence of human thinking and patterns of behavior. Students learn various theories to expand their understanding of how people work and how markets are driven in an increasingly technology-driven and globalized business world. The text emphasizes the competitive advantage of being able to analyze a variety of business-related situations from a humanities perspective. It highlights the ways in which a working knowledge of the humanities can support business scholarship and successful business practice. Each unit within the text addresses the intersection of business and a particular school of the humanities: culture, psychology and self-identity, history and philosophy, visual arts, and sociology and anthropology. Additional units examine how issues related to race, class, and gender increasingly influence policymaking within organizations, as well as the importance of cultural competency to corporate sustainability within the global marketplace. Unique and innovative in approach, Business and Humanities is an ideal resource for business courses at all academic levels. Kristina Gibby-Wachter, Ph.D. is a professor in the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah and president of Precision Communications Consulting. She specializes in cultural foundations, humanities in business, cross-cultural competency, and has extensive experience in curriculum design, corporate leadership, and business communications consultation.

The Wisdom Of Finance by Mihir Desai

“Entertaining and informative. Desai takes us on a journey through the fundamentals of finance, from asset pricing to risk and risk management, via options, mergers, debt, and bankruptcy."- John Lanchester, The New Yorker "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 Longlisted for 2017 Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year A 2017 AMAZON PICK IN BUSINESS & LEADERSHIP A WealthManagement.com BEST BUSINESS BOOK OF 2017 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.
