Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das E-Book inklusive! Ein Buch, das die Börse zum Beben bringt Michael Lewis, begnadeter Sachbuchautor, lüftet mit seinem neuen Buch "das dunkelste Geheimnis der Börse". Wer an Börse denkt, hat oft ein Bild im Kopf: wild gestikulierende Makler, die unter immensem Zeitdruck Dinge kaufen, um sie gleich wieder zu verkaufen. Doch das ist Geschichte. Die Realität an der Börse sieht anders aus - das Parkett hat längst neue Regeln. Michael Lewis, Wirtschaftsjournalist und begnadeter Sachbuchautor, sorgte mit seinem neuen Buch für ein Erdbeben. Der Erzähler unter den Sachbuchautoren enthüllt die Geschichte einer Gruppe genialer Wall-Street-Außenseiter. Sie haben herausgefunden, wie die Börse zum Vorteil von Insidern manipuliert wird, die ohne Risiko Milliarden absahnen und abends ohne eine einzige Aktie nach Hause gehen. Ein Buch über die neuen "Helden" an der Börse Der Entschluss der "Helden": Sie schaffen ein paralleles System, das sich den raffgierigen "Flash Boys" in den Weg stellt. Lewis bringt Licht in die dunkelste Ecke der Börse. Seine filmreife Geschichte über den Kampf um Geschwindigkeit - auf einem Markt, den zwar keiner sieht, der unsere Wirtschaft aber ernsthaft bedroht - bringt die Wall Street zum Beben. Dieses Buch lässt die Börsenwelt erzittern. Einen Tag nach seinem Erscheinen kündigten FBI und amerikanisches Justizministerium an, sie würden Untersuchungen gegen den von Lewis gegeißelten Hochfrequenzhandel an den Börsen einleiten. Lewis ... - "... hat eine neue Ebene der Aufmerksamkeit erreicht". (FAZ) - ... lässt den "The Wolf of Wall Street" wie ein Lamm wirken. - ... ist der derzeit packendste (Reality-)Thriller über die Finanzwelt gelungen. - ... enthüllt, wie Märkte und Privatanleger manipuliert werden.

Release Date: 2009
Genre: Games

Trading the Betfair and sporting markets in-play is rapidly growing in popularity thanks to the increased sporting coverage available on many different satellite and cable channels. Many people start by just using Betfair to obtain better odds than those available at the traditional bookmakers. They then perhaps do a little more research and learn to trade the markets, but to make a regular profit a serious, disciplined and planned approach needs to be employed in order to not only win but keep on winning. 'Mastering Betfair' will take the reader through many of the low-risk strategies developed by the author over the past 3 years. The book also aims to highlight to the Betfair user the importance of employing disciplines - such as managing risk - that are normally associated with the financial markets, and indeed it is hoped that the book will also highlight to the financial trader the unique opportunities that are available on Betfair.

Jemand mag ein Dribbelkünstler sein oder ein Flankengott, aber ohne eine Struktur auf dem Platz nützt das wenig. Fußball ist mehr als Statistik und Taktik, mehr als Ausnahmespieler und mehr als der unbedingte Wille zu gewinnen. Fußball ist mehr als ein Spiel. Mathematik auch. David Sumpter entwirft in seinem Buch eine Fußball-Mathematik, die weit über Alex Fergusons Taktiken und Lionel Messis Tempodribblings hinausgeht.

Die Weisheit der Vielen

Author: James Surowiecki
Publisher: C. Bertelsmann Verlag
ISBN: 9783641010751
Release Date: 2009-01-26
Genre: Psychology

Publikumsjoker sticht Expertenmeinung: Warum die Gruppe klüger ist als ihr gescheitestes Mitglied Die Masse ist dumm, dumpf und gefährlich. Dieses verbreitete und von Wissenschaftlern gestützte Urteil ist falsch. Wahlumfragen, Pferdewetten, der Publikumsjoker bei Günther Jauch, Google oder Millionen Steuerzahler belegen: Die Menge entscheidet in der Regel intelligenter und effizienter als der klügste Einzelne in ihren Reihen. Ihre Problemlösungen greifen besser als die von Experten. Vorausgesetzt, jeder Einzelne denkt und handelt unabhängig, die Gruppe ist groß und vielfältig, und sie kann darauf vertrauen, dass ihre Meinung wirklich zählt. James Surowiecki weist die Weisheit der Vielen und die Überlegenheit kollektiver Intelligenz nach anhand einer Vielzahl von Fallbeispielen aus Alltag, Familie, Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Politik. Ganz gleich, ob es sich um die Schätzung des Gewichts eines Ochsen, um die Suche nach einem vermissten U-Boot oder die Isolierung des SARS-Erregers geht, Gruppen finden die effektivere Lösung eines Problems. Für die Aufgaben der Gesellschaft der Zukunft sind Experten und (Meinungs-)Führer eher das Auslaufmodell. James Surowiecki belegt die Weitsicht, Intelligenz und Effektivität großer Gruppen und macht einsichtig, dass und warum ganz normale Leute in der Lage sind, sich in einer Gemeinschaft erfolgreich zu organisieren und sich selbst zu verwalten. Ein Buch, das die Weltsicht verändert und neue Perspektiven weist für alle gesellschaftlichen Bereiche. Mit unverstelltem Blick untersucht der amerikanische Autor das Phänomen der Gruppe und ihrer klugen Entscheidungen, wenn die richtigen Voraussetzungen gegeben sind. Eine aufschlussreiche, unterhaltsame Lektüre und zugleich ein kraftvoller Kontrapunkt zur gegenwärtigen Diskussion um Eliten und einzelne Meinungsführer.
