The New Yorker books blog on educating financiers.
An employee of a big financial-services firm said, “I completely disagree with the idea that ‘boring’ and ‘bookworm’ are one and the same.” An excellent start, to be sure, and he went on to mention that a good portion of the financial sector is foreign-born, and their relationships with books vary from culture to culture. One, from a large hedge fund, told me, “Where I work, the top brass aren't that into reading, but the middle managers read a lot … I've had people off-handedly suggest that I read Heidegger.”
