Lawyer, academic and author Mehrsa Baradaran immigrated to the US with her family in 1986 from Iran- joining the LDS church shortly after. She attended BYU, served a mission in Texas and went on to become a lawyer. She was working on Wall Street during the financial crisis of 2008 and entered academia with much to say about banking ethics and the morality of financial institutions. She joins me to talk about her unique life and to discuss financial systems and how they can be transformed for the least of us with more attention to the fundamentals of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Mehrsa is the author of a powerful book: How the Other Half Banks: Exclusion, Exploitation and the Threat to Democracy which has been widely discussed in the US media.
