HBS Insider

The problem with being an investor is that no matter what you do, you always have investments on your mind. From making analogies between dating and options theory, to viewing HBS as a forward on your classmates’ contacts, the topic never leaves. Hence, it only makes sense to tell you what was on my mind…


The Economics of Free: Musings on B-School Handouts

Truly inspired by my professor’s musings on general business theory this year, I thought I would lend a hand in defining some new theory that too may prove useful someday. In my seminal work (love the word seminal), I want to posit a new theory that will soon sweep business schools near and far. I…


Ice Wine

It has been referred to as “the nectar of the gods”. In the past decade, it has achieved “Prada handbag” status in the wine-drinking world, with counterfeit ‘faux’ product being manufactured and sold in Asia. Ice Wine is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after luxury goods for the urbane wine drinker. First produced in…


Bahamas and Australia Lead Real Medal Table

The Bahamas are the greatest sporting nation on earth, followed closely by Australia. That is the only conclusion that can be drawn from the 2004 Olympics, held in Athens from August 13th – 29th. ‘But the US topped the medal tally, with China and Russia next’ I hear some wail. So we need to take…


On-Campus Interview Series: A Baker Scholar

This edition of the Harbus sees 2004’s first faculty interview. At 6ft 6 inches, Assistant Professor Malcolm Baker has a commanding presence, but I quickly find out that he is a most personable and welcoming man. He is clearly popular with his colleagues – twice during our interview other faculty came in to ask him…

What I Didn't Do On My Holiday – Basel, Switzerland

I got up at 5 a.m. this morning-not because it seemed like a good idea at the time, more because my body was convinced that it was 11 a.m. and I’d slept in. Such is the thrill of jetlag after returning to Harvard from three months in Basel, Switzerland. We had a fabulous summer with…



It appears inevitable that the United States will soon go to war. If by chance of a miracle we do not fight Iraq, we will continue to engage with absolute certainty against the state of domestic and international public opinion. In one of this week’s featured articles, we explore America’s diplomatic strategy to persuade Turkey,…


Sam Adams' Strong Line:

Since the brand was born in 1985, Sam Adams has been making beers that have greatly impact on the brewing industry. Sam Adams Lager helped bring about the microbrewery revolution and introduced better beer to many Americans. Not satisfied with one great success, the brand’s founder, Jim Koch, has constantly pushed forward by using innovative…


Jews For Harbus

I’ve never been particularly religious. Sure, I was bat-mitzvah-ed, I go to temple on the high holidays, I attend Passover seders (although try to boycott those that exceed twenty minutes), I utter the occasional Yiddish phrase, and I went to religious school on Wednesday afternoons at the most reform temple in Manhattan (so reform, it…


Confessions of a Successful Dot-Com Entrepreneur

The sight was rare: a dot-com entrepreneur whose company is profitable. Last Tuesday, Intuit Chairman and founder, Scott Cook (HBS ’76) treated a crammed Aldrich classroom to his key learnings on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and manager. After a brief stint with Procter & Gamble, Cook established Intuit in 1983 with…


Drinking in German Culture a Liter at a Time

Thousands of Oktoberfest revelers singing “Hey, hey baby, I want to know, if you’ll be my girl” and “Ein Prosit, ein Prooosit der Gemuet-lich-keit” still rings through the minds of twenty-seven EC students who celebrated Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany over the Columbus Day weekend. Oktoberfest has been celebrated in Munich every year since 1810, and…


Case Rip Cord Hits Four Continents

Let’s go in reverse alphabetical order today, just for kicks: WebMD: “The health care industry received an average score of only 2 out of 10 in ratings of `customer friendliness.’” Does this really say anything about the people involved? Because a doctor can be the friendliest person in the world, but if he sticks a…


Auntie Sam, Why Are Women So Complicated?

Dear Auntie Sam- I’ve been a mess for the past couple weeks. I came to HBS from Germany, at about the same time a woman named Julia from my group of friends there also moved to Boston. Both of us coincidentally committed to return to Europe for a ski trip to Zermatt with our old…
