Quantcast

Just as White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, Irish-Catholics and Jews once made the ascent from immigrants to power brokers, it is now the Indian-American's turn. Citigroup, PepsiCo and Mastercard are just a handful of the Fortune 500 companies led by a group known as the "Twice Blessed." Yet little is known about how these Indian emigres (and children of emigres) rose through the ranks until now.

When The Galleon Group, one of the world's largest hedge funds, was brought down by an insider trading scandal in 2009, the convictions of the fund's founder, Raj Rajaratnam, and his accomplice, Rajat Gupta, transformed them overnight from Horatio Alger immigrant success stories to Shakespearean tragedies.

Join veteran journalist and former Wall Street Journal reporter Anita Raghavan as she discusses her latest book, The Billionaire's Apprentice: The Rise of The Indian-American Elite and The Fall of The Galleon Hedge Fund.
