Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) Professor Shiller characterizes investment banking by contrasting it to consulting, commercial banking, and securities trading. Then, in order to see the essence of investment banking, he reviews some of the principles that John Whitehead, the former chairman of Goldman Sachs, has formulated. These principles are the basis for a discussion of the substantial power that investment bankers have, and their role in society.

"Gerald and Lily Chow from Hong Kong, agreed to provide Mark Zimny and his company, IvyAdmit, with the hefty retainer believing that he would use the money to make generous donations to schools like Harvard, Yale and Princeton on their behalf and secure their sons' places at top schools. But after two years of continually transmitting funds to Mr Zimny for donations and intense tutoring, the Chows became suspicious of how the 'consultant' was spending the money and a superficial investigation soon revealed that no donations had been made. Mr and Mrs Chow met Mr Zimny in 2007 at an event at the Massachusetts prep school that their oldest son attended.
