Feature in the NZZ

McKinsey seems to be slipping from one scandal to the next – at least that’s the impression given by investigative journalists Walt Bogdanich and Michael Forsythe in a new book. The consultants are said to have undermined public health programs, placed themselves in the service of the Saudi state, and made dubious consulting assignments in South Africa under the former Zuma government – an involvement that turned the state system into a self-service store for corrupt businessmen. And yet, McKinsey’s popularity among political and business leaders continues unabated. Why is that? The Neue Zürcher Zeitung addresses this question in a current feature based on a study by WGMB.
