The Wrong Answer Faster
- The Inside Story of Making the Machine that Trades Trillions
- By: Michael Goodkin
- Narrated by: Gregory Itzin
- Length: 11 hrs and 49 mins
In 1968, Michael Goodkin is about to graduate from Columbia University. While his classmates interview for jobs, he daydreams of seeing the world as a man of independent means. Noticing that there are no computers on Wall Street and drawing on his experiences as a failed teenage investor and successful gambler, he has an epiphany: Since no one knows the right price for anything, the only way to beat the market is to make a computer that comes up with the wrong answer faster than the professionals. And thus begins a journey that takes this provincial Midwesterner from nearly broke to opulent Park Avenue.
