"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.

Due: Monday 3/28 for Hilbert class.
Due week of April 11th for Classes on campus.

The only reason that the industry unemployment rate did not spike in step was because an even greater number of workers quit the business altogether, jumping to other industries or retiring. The experienced labor force for banks, brokerages and insurance companies fell by 344,000 or 4.8% in the last 12 months."
