The 3 Principles Of Wise Power
News from INSEAD
“One of today’s damaging and common leadership misconceptions is the confusion of power with external control. All too often, we think of power as the ability to direct or influence the behaviour of others, or to force the course of events to conform to a predetermined scheme.

“’My main research topic is the anatomy of financialization,’ says Thesmar, ‘and how the contractual arrangements that get made in the financial sector trickle down to the rest of the economy.’
“By that, Thesmar means he studies the consequences of the global wave of financial development since the 1980s. This ‘financial deepening,’ as he puts it, came from a combination of deregulation and technological change; it led to the emergence of hedge funds, private equity funds, the promotion of shareholder value maximization, and deeper and more liquid stock markets.”
