Barbara Hauser speaks from direct experience. She considers family governance from an international perspective, reporting from her work with families in the USA, France, Saudi Arabia, Japan, India and the Navajo Nation. She wisely invites her readers to step outside of their specific cultural point of view and view governance from these six different perspectives. This move opens the reader to a broader view of the subject, allowing for a deep and creative approach.
The overarching theme in this book: peaceful, well governed families make for peaceful, well governed nations. Barbara Hauser teaches the reader how to get there.
It is particularly valuable to family lawyers, family officers and private bankers who seek to assist their clients, families in possession of wealth, in finding ways out of family crises and avoiding financial ruin, as well as in more structured situations, establishing rules of governance and risk.
It lays out the keys to maintaining family harmony and the prudent management of resources, and deals with solutions for families of all origins, nationalities and geographical locations.
