"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.
HIGHLY recommended! The show is really two separate stories--on one on the history of the Black Scholes formula, and one on the Collapse of Long Term Capital Management. (FWIW We usually use the latter mainly in class but the whole thing is good!)
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.
