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.

“But there is an equally necessary kind of power, which is exerted inwardly. It turns out that power is as much about the ability to adapt to the world around us as it is about shaping the world. As the global business landscape becomes increasingly complex, our ability to develop our presence and gravitas has become an indispensable companion of authority.”

Does Free Flow Of Capital Make The Economy More Efficient?

News from MIT Sloan School of Management 

“David Thesmar is an MIT professor who studies the growing influence of the financial sector over large economies. But here’s another way of summarizing his work: Thesmar is a scholar of the turbulence these changes have created.

“’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.”
