Author 'The Wisdom of Finance'
Mihir A. Desai was born in India and raised in Hong Kong and New Jersey. As a professor and award-winning teacher at Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School, Desai teaches finance, tax law, entrepreneurship and has recently developed an online finance course for the HBX platform. His scholarship on corporate finance, international finance and tax policy has prompted several invitations to testify before the U.S. Congress and serves as the basis of his advisory role to leading global companies and organizations.
Desai's book The Wisdom of Finance is a wholly unique study of finance through the lens of the humanities, offering a refreshing new perspective on one of the world's most complex and misunderstood professions.
The finance sector often lives up to its bad reputation, but here's how a 2000-year-old piece of wisdom can help rehabilitate the way people and corporations think about money.
