If You Had Everything Computationally Where Would You Put it, Financially?
Technology has transformed investment and trading over the past 30 years. Markets have become computer networks, brokers are disintermediated by direct access and algo trading. Reporters are disintermediated when investors have access to primary sources at the same time they do. An ever larger view of exploitable economic and business activity can found on the web. Dr. Leinweber brings an unusually broad and deep view to these issues, from both a sell- and buy-side perspective.
