Sie sind eine Minderheit, gleich wohin sie gehen. In der Heimat nicht gewollt, aus dem Exil vertrieben, ohne Geld, aber mit vielen hungrigen Kindern im Schlepptau so kamen die Patels aus Indien in den 70er-Jahren in den USA an. Obwohl nur ein Bruchteil der Inder in den USA zur Volksgruppe der Patels gehört, gehören Ihnen weit über 50 Prozent der Motels in den Vereinigten Staaten. Wie wurden aus den armen Immigranten so erfolgreiche Geschäftsleute? Monish Pabrai verrät Ihnen das Geheimnis: Dhandho. Dhandho heißt übersetzt etwa Unternehmungen, die Wohlstand hervorbringen. Darunter lassen sich neun Prinzipien zusammenfassen, die man bei seinen Geschäften beherzigen sollte. Indische Kultur mit westlichem Kapitalismus diese Mischung verspricht, ein Erfolgsrezept zu werden!
