160 Harvard MBAs from whom you should run like the plague

A few friends spotted this in the New York Times:

A new oath to be taken by graduates of Harvard Business School next week says, in effect, that greed is not good . . . -- that the goal of a business manager is to “serve the greater good” . . . that Harvard M.B.A.’s will act responsibly, ethically and refrain from advancing their “own narrow ambitions” at the expense of others.

“What happened,” asks the Times, “to making money?”

Fair question.  As Paul McKeever says, “here are 160 Harvard MBAs from whom you should run like the plague.”

NB: So you’re probably asking yourself, is greed good?  Well, depends what you mean by “greed,” says Yaron Brook.

That oath is no stupider than the crap that spouts from the mouth of all the other MBAs around the place. Most of them are far too stupid to make any money by employing their skills productively, so chanting platitudes is pretty much all they are good for.
