Professor Raymond Fisman is best known for his study of gangsters; economic gangsters that is. The Lambert Family Professor of Social Enterprise and director of the Social Enterprise Program shines a spotlight on the determinants of global corruption, altruism, and corporate social responsibility. In other words, Professor Fisman is interested in what makes people, companies, and governments do bad things.

His first book, Economic Gangsters: Violence, Corruption, and the Poverty of Nations, is a fresh look at the term “gangster.” Published by Princeton University Press in 2008, the book is an entertaining look at the underworld of global economic development.

Professor Fisman’s work has been covered widely in the popular press, from Maureen Dowd’s column in The New York Timesto al Jazeera to Shanghai Daily. He also writes a monthly column for the online magazine, Slate, where he addresses issues associated with women and leadership and the economics of civil war.

Fisman’s next book, a look at the economics of office life, is due to hit shelves in 2012.
