"The Trillion Dollar bet, which is based on the Long Term Capital Management story (when Genius Failed) , is a staple in my classes. Here is the first of 5 parts of the old PBS video.

For MBA 610 this is required. I will be collecting a one-two page paper on lessons learned, and what is the implications for firms, investors, regulators, and portfolio managers.
Due: Monday 3/28 for Hilbert class.
Due week of April 11th for Classes on campus.

The experienced labor force for banks, brokerages and insurance companies fell by 344,000 or 4.8% in the last 12 months."
