Culture of Wall Street

University of Minnesota professor Karen Ho talks about how Wall Street is a culture full of prep school cronies that are so focused on profits and bonuses, that they have no long term economic vision. Ho is the author of the upcoming book, Liquidated: An Ethnography of Wall Street. Based on three years of research immersed in Wall Street fieldwork, including working for a bank, she reveals the dominance of financial culture and how it has spread across America and set the stage for financial crises. This video is part of the Expert Perspectives series at the University of Minnesota.
