Radical Transparency with Bridgewater Founder Ray Dalio

Ray Dalio (HBS ’73), founder of Bridgewater, the world’s largest hedge fund with approximately $160 billion in assets under management, built his firm’s investment process around the principles of radical truth and radical transparency.

From the Editors’ Desk: No More “Lost Einsteins”

For all the attention directed toward startups in an era of record venture capital financing, massive appetite for early-stage investments, and an ever-growing club of VC-backed “unicorns” crossing billion-dollar valuations, entrepreneurial activity by MBAs from leading programs has lagged far behind. Entrepreneurship among recent MBA graduates has reached its lowest level in eight years, falling…

What Women Want?

From the Editors’ desk: Can a business school die of shame?

Commit to Growth

We hear a lot about growth. So much that perhaps you just tune out the message as part of the background noise. Growth? We need jobs, money to live on and pay back loans, life partners, children, friends, and a little (very little) time for ourselves. Check with me later. Besides, have we not been…

Let’s talk about family wealth

To get into HBS, family money matters. It’s an uncomfortable truth. “At 38 colleges in America,” The New York Times provocatively declared earlier this year, “more students came from the top 1 percent of the income scale than from the entire bottom 60 percent.” Stated another way, a child born into the top 1 percent…

Why Competition in the Politics Industry is Failing America If our political system were an industry – the Political Industrial Complex – it would be valued at more than $16 billon.
