How a band of maverick physicists used chaos theory to
trade their way to fortune on Wall Street.
How could a couple of
rumpled physicists in sandals and Eat the Rich T-shirts, piling
computers into an adobe house in Santa Fe, hope to take on the Masters
of the Universe from Goldman Sachs? Doyne Farmer and Norman Packard may
never have read The Wall Street Journal, but they happen to be among the
founders of the new sciences of chaos and complexity. Who better to try
to find order in the apparently unreasoned chaos of the global
financial markets? Thomas Bass first made readers aware of Farmer and
Packard in The Eudaemonic Pie, in which he chronicled their assault on
the casinos of Las Vegas. Here, Bass takes us inside their start-up
company, at first a motley collection of long-haired Ph.D.s, nervously
testing their computer forecasting models. As confidence builds, Farmer
and Packard make their way to the centers of financial power, where they
find investors and ultimately go live with real money. Once they are
off and running, The Predictors becomes a dizzying, often hilarious tale
of genius and greed, power brokers and rebels, as well as a brisk
education in chaos, complexity, and the world financial
markets.
