The Wall Street Facebook

In a double example of the power of networks, my mother-in-law, who religiously reads the NY times ( I don’t have time) alerted me to this great network graphic today.

It shows actors in the world of finance (Wall Street’s Facebook) and also captures their firm, firm type, graduate school affiliation and undergraduate affiliation.

I was bummed to see my alma mater’s  in-state rival, Macalester, with two nodes to Carleton’s goose egg.  Clearly, it produces too many scholars relative to investment bankers.  :<)
