When everyone else says no, say yes. James Harmon has embraced that motto through a lifetime of adventures—brokering international deals, meeting the famous and the notorious alike, purchasing the song “Happy Birthday” for $18 million, and even wrangling congressional back-room dealings as CEO of the Export-Import Bank during the Clinton Administration. From the moment he arrived on Wall Street as a young investment banker in the 1970s, Harmon said yes to each new chapter. His journey begins in Italy and reaches a climax during post-Arab Spring protests in Egypt, where he works with the State Department to stimulate the local economy. At each stop, Harmon advocates for global change by examining the issues of our time, such as the economic empowerment of women and the urgent need for a carbon-free future.
