It’s Never Been a Better Time to be a Democrat

In many ways, this election reminds me of FDR’s 1932 campaign. FDR ran a campaign as a great communicator against the stumpy Herbert Hoover. He campaigned through a tumultuous economic environment, with a failing banking system, high unemployment, and in a relatively hostile global environment. The 1932 election was also transformative. During the 70 years…

How Likely are HBS Students to Take a Stand?

We recently polled RC students to see how they might react in three hypothetical situations where other HBS students might be behaving inappropriately. What respondents were not told, and what most did not know, was that these situations were based on real-life events from HBS’s past. Comparing what students said they would do (in the…

Reflections on The Visits of Natalie Portman and Alan Patricof

I recently attended two events related to microfinance in developing economies; one focused on debt capital and the other on equity capital.

A Partner's View of HBS

Exactly when were the words ‘girlfriend’, ‘boyfriend’, ‘fianc‚/e’, ‘wife’ and ‘husband’ erased from the dictionary and replaced by the word ‘Partner’? In fact, the word ‘Partner’ is so descriptive that upon meeting people during our early days, it seems to suffice as our introduction, magically encapsulating our name, our job, our hopes and our dreams….

A Burden To Us All

The norm of making decisions without consulting students needs to change, but only if the SA gets some teeth I wrote several articles last term with one very common theme: complete and utter risk aversion.

Do you want to have a party?

I am not saying that everyone here is a boring, stay-at-home, early-to-bed party pooper, but there does seem to be a lot of party fatigue going around. Why is it so hard to have a party at HBS? Well, actually throwing a normal party is fairly easy-you pick a day, e-mail your friends, buy a…

Point – Stop Being So Sensitive

A remarkable thing happened the other day in a LEAD class. We were discussing the Lyndon Twitchell and Jenny Kravitz incident.
