Summary
"Financial markets are a fascinating example of 'complexity in action': a real-world complex system whose evolution is dictated by the decisions of crowds of traders who are continually trying to win a vast global 'game'. This book draws on recent ideas from the highly topical science of complexity and complex systems, to address the following questions. How do financial markets behave? Why do financial markets behave in the way that they do? What can we do to minimize risk, given this behaviour?"--BOOK JACKET
