The Moral Failure of the Business School Elite

Ralph has a fascinating conversation with author Duff McDonald about how business schools like Harvard are producing graduates who are nothing more than “heat seeking money missiles.”  And muckraking journalist, Roldo Bartimole, tells us how billionaire sports team owners extort money from a city’s taxpayers.



Duff McDonald is an award winning journalist, who has been a contributing editor at New York,” “Fortune,” and “The New York Observer” as well as writing for many other publications. He is also the author of The Firm: The Story of McKinsey & Its Secret Influence on American Business and Last Man Standinga biography of JP Morgan CEO, Jamie Dimon.  Mr. McDonald’s latest book is The Golden Passport: Harvard Business School, the Limits of Capitalism, and the Moral Failure of the MBA Elite.

Roldo Bartimole has been called a lot of things in his career, “gadfly,” “muckraker,” “curmudgeon,” “The Conscience of Cleveland.” Cleveland Magazine called him “the poor man’s Tom Paine.”  He is a journalist, who for over thirty years put out his own bi-weekly newsletter called, “Point of View,” which took a critical look at the power structure in Cleveland, reporting on the wealthy’s control of the city’s agenda to the detriment of its working-class and poor residents.

    Ralph, seriously I feel so indebted to you for your weekly show. I often purchase your books to give to young people, not to mention the books mentioned on the show. I’m a member of a health themed toastmasters club and when especially relevant to me, I study the materials from the show and give talks based on what I learned to the members. I encourage everyone I know to listen to the show. NPR should include your program nationwide.
    I’m grateful and even though it’s not likely that I could meet and chat with you in person, I consider you a great personal friend and mentor.

    The professional sports people are all overpaid. If anyone should be multimillionares it should be police officers, firemen,and veterans. They need to change things in the sports world……but they won’t. We need a boatload of Ralph Nader’s. Too bad they don’t exist!
