How should the "fitness" of financial traders be measured? What drives the co-evolution of these fitnesses over time? Do sophisticated (informed) traders necessarily drive "noise traders" from financial markets? What are the basic "empirical stylized facts" for financial markets? How well are these stylized facts captured by standard financial models? By agent-based financial models? George Akerlof and Robert J.

MBA mania: Introspection « Adonis Diaries
After the latest financial crash, MBA graduates are having hard time finding jobs:  Banks, financial institutions, and financial consulting firms have realized that they need graduates in fields that produce added values.  Wall Street has put to pasture over 250,000 MBA employees since 2007.  The US business schools used to graduate over 150,000 MBA degree holders per year before the crash and the trend is reversing.  More than half these graduates were foreigners who invested over $80,000 (of family wealth).  For example, India is spending over four billions a year for Indian students going after graduate studies in the USA and ... market research, surveys and trends

Obama learns to sound like Reagan
By the summer of 1982, Ronald Reagan’s approval ratings were in the low 40s, a bit lower than Barack Obama’s are now. Voters were angry over a deep recession, and many commentators expected that the GOP would lose as many as 50 seats in the House of Representatives. But Reagan came out swinging, blaming Jimmy Carter’s policies for a bad economy. He claimed he had inherited the “worst economic mess” in decades, further telling voters that “No, we haven’t solved 20 years of problems in our first 20 months in office, but we have made a beginning where others failed to act.” As a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Biti can fool some, but not all of us
FINANCE Minister Tendai Biti — staring at staggering political irrelevance as the embattled secretary-general of Morgan Tsvangirai’s now irretrievably divided MDC faction — squandered yet another budget statement opportunity to justify his ministerial portfolio when he presented a lacklustre 2010 mid-term fiscal policy review in Parliament last Wednesday which was laden with telling contradictions underpinned by his mischievous political intent. It should be remembered that Biti’s appointment as finance minister following the formation of the coalition Government was controversial not least because there was nothing ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Question on programming for financial modeling. | Ask MetaFilter
I'm looking more at capital markets, factor modeling,and macroeconomic stuff, rather than cost projections and the like. In my quest to make myself more marketable to employers, I have decided it would be beneficial to me to be able to write sophisticated models in VBA for Excel, S-plus, or a related language. While my sata and quant knowledge are pretty good, my programming skills are limited to BASIC on a Commodore 64, so I'd be starting more or less from scratch. My questions: What language/ software package will have the most longevity? What language/ software package will be the easiest to learn? What are the ...
