Celebrate Fischer Black in NYC with Aaron Brown

Discussion in 'Hook Up' started by ambienCR, Nov 2, 2009.

  1. I'm celebrating Fischer Black on November 24th in New York with free t-shirts and books (from me), free food and drink (from Bloomberg). Don't miss it.
    Fischer Black’s two books are being republished, Business Cycles and Equilibrium by Wiley this month and Exploring General Equilibrium by MIT Press in January. If you only know Fischer through Black-Scholes, the Black CAPM Black-Derman-Toy, Black-Litterman and Black Karasinsky, you missed his most controversial work which is detailed in these books.

    Aaron Brown and Bloomberg are celebrating on November 24th in New York with a free event featuring speakers, t-shirt and book giveaways, food and drink. You can sign up using “BU” on Bloomberg or by emailing NASeminar@Bloomberg.net. This event will be oversubscribed, so don’t delay.

  2. Are you promoting on this site?

    Is this SPAM?

    Did you pay Elite Trader an advertising fee?

    I would enjoy this. One question though, I divide 180 minutes by 8 speakers, and I get an average of 22.5 minutes of talk time per person. That seems real tight.


  9. Are you attending, Mr.Nitro? Im sure some speakers will talk longer than others, some will just say hi. should be a good time for all.

    I live in Chicago. If I lived in NY, it would be 100 delta that I attend.
