About the book
This compelling new book by TTF USA Ambassador, Dr. Kara Tan Bhala, entitled “Ethics in Finance: Case Studies from a Woman’s Life on Wall Street” tells the story of an immigrant Asian American woman’s journey through Wall Street finance.
She recounts her encounters during her career, with common but often unacknowledged financial ethics problems through ten short stories or case studies. Dr. Tan Bhala uses these narratives to engage the reader into learning how to evaluate and to determine resolutions to ethical issues in real life situations. The book aims to teach and to entertain. Dr. Tan Bhala makes abstract and abstruse moral philosophical concepts understandable for the reader by using plain language, in an informal style, and relating the philosophy to her experiences.
The book gets to the very heart of the matters that are of huge importance to the TTF and our fast-growing community.
