Why do Harvard kids head to Wall Street?

People on Wall Street work very hard and they feel they chose this path because there was a reward promised to them. And now, when it’s being taken away from them, they get very angry. If the reward hadn’t been offered to them, they feel they would’ve followed their passion and become a journalist or something.

This part was amusing. Please read the entire thing though.

I’m also told by the inimitable Whet Moser (http://twitter.com/whet) that if you enjoy this sort of thing, you’ll like Liquidated by Karen Ho: http://www.amazon.com/Liquidated-Ethnography-Street-Franklin-Center/dp/082234…
