Observations on the Science of Finance in the Practice of Finance

There will be a time "beyond crisis," asserts Robert C. Merton, who delves into the dense science of derivatives -- a field he has fundamentally shaped -- to explain how the vast global economic collapse has come about, and how financial innovations at the heart of the collapse could also be tools for reconstruction.

Student Stories: Anjuli Gupta, MBA '08

Anjuli Gupta doesn't believe in just doing something good in the world; for her, it's about doing the most good that she can. Passionate about natural resources, Anjuli hopes to focus on energy finance after graduation. Having worked on environmental policy for non-profit, grassroots organizations, she sees finance as a major driver toward positive change. In order accomplish her goals, Anjuli believes that she needs to know how to run a team -- and how to design an organization that is effective. She came to MIT Sloan to learn all that and more. Anjuli spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about what she gained from the first-semester core, the rollercoaster ride of internship interviews, and spring break in Costa Rica.

MIT experts analyze financial crisis, debate cures

A panel of MIT faculty experts convened Oct. 7 to discuss current economic news. The panelists focused on different aspects of the history, the present unfolding, and the likely future of the financial mess, and emphasized that the situation is far more complex -- and the long-term outcome more uncertain -- than is typically portrayed.

Warning: Physics Envy May be Hazardous to Your Wealth

Andrew Lo addresses the problem of finding the right level of abstraction with which to think about economic phenomena. He compares economics to physics, with some surprising results.

Microfinancing aimed at financial, social sustainability

How do you balance social and financial sustainability? That rather sticky question was just one of many facing the S-Lab team working in Guatemala for the Grameen Project. Grameen, a microfinance organization funded by the Whole Planet Foundation, provides short-term loans to poor women in an effort to empower them to finance their own businesses. The businesses may be small -- based mostly in handcrafts and agriculture -- but the results for the women involved can make a big impact. S-Lab team members Faaiza Rashid and Juan Martin spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about being on at the ground level in Guatemala and helping Grameen figure out ways to match their financial goals with formidable social challenges.

Bridging the knowledge gap on governments as financial institutions – Deborah Lucas

Ask most finance experts about the “world’s largest financial institutions,” and you’ll hear names like Citigroup, ICBC (China’s largest bank) and HSBC. However, governments top the list of large financial institutions, with investment and insurance operations that dwarf those of any private enterprise. For instance, last year the U.S. federal government made almost all student loans and backed over 97% of newly originated mortgages. Add to that Uncle Sam’s lending activities for agriculture, small business, energy and trade, plus its provision of insurance for private pensions and deposits, and you’ll discover it’s an $18-trillion financial institution. By comparison, JP Morgan Chase, the largest U.S. bank, had assets totaling about $2.4 trillion. While government practices differ across countries, the basic story is much the same everywhere. As the world’s largest and most interconnected financial institutions — and through their activities as rule-makers and regulators — governments have an enormous influence on … Read More »The post Bridging the knowledge gap on governments as financial institutions – Deborah Lucas appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.

Here’s proof that Wall Street regulators listen to you — Andrei Kirilenko

From MarketWatch Especially concerning business regulations, critics argue, an inside the Beltway mentality prevails. Only the lobbyists and industry insiders are heard.

From The Huffington Post A few years ago, we here at MIT Sloan School of Management looked in to launching an MBA track to complement the existing tracks in Finance and Entrepreneurship. We contacted alumni and business professionals to determine what types of skills companies most desired in our MBA graduates. We wanted to find out what the companies’ needs were and where they saw gaps. What we found is perhaps the paradox of today’s global business world: even as markets have become increasingly interconnected and technology enables employees spread all over the globe to easily share knowledge and resources, it’s still hard for large organizations to achieve true interconnectedness that get things done. The reason is simple. Employees have a natural tendency to be self-contained within their particular business units. Marketing folks mostly talk to other marketing folks; operations people consult other operations people; and the finance team pretty … Read More »The post ‘Cultivating a holistic, integrative approach’: MIT Sloan School reflects on new Enterprise Management Track — Sharmila Chatterjee appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
