Quants - The Alchemists of Wall Street - VPRO documentary

Quants are the math wizards and computer programmers in the engine room of our global financial system who designed the financial products that almost crashed Wall street. The credit crunch has shown how the global financial system has become increasingly dependent on mathematical models trying to quantify human (economic) behaviour. Now the quants are at the heart of yet another technological revolution in finance: trading at the speed of light. What are the risks of treating the economy and its markets as a complex machine? Will we be able to keep control of this model-based financial system, or have we created a monster? A story about greed, fear and randomness from the insides of Wall Street.Originally broadcasted by VPRO in 2010.© VPRO Backlight February 2010On VPRO broadcast you will find nonfiction videos with English subtitles, French subtitles and Spanish subtitles, such as documentaries, short interviews and documentary series.VPRO Documentary publishes one new subtitled documentary about current affairs, finance, sustainability, climate change or politics every week.

My anxiety is strictly social and very specific social situations but the situations are all very similar and my anxiety makes me go beat red and my heart races and I can’t express how crippling it is. It embarrasses me so much and I need medication for it.
