Anat R. Admati holds a bachelor’s degree from Hebrew University in Jerusalem and a doctorate from Yale University, and is a professor of finance and economics at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Her recent research has focused on corporate governance and banking. She is the co-author of The Bankers’ New Clothes: What’s Wrong with Banking and What to Do about It. The book and many commentaries expose the continued failure by policymakers to protect the public and reduce the harm and distortions from a reckless financial system. Admati believes that explaining the issues to a broad audience is essential for bringing about policy change.
