A Mathematician Plays The Stock Market John Allen Paulos БИЗНЕС. Despite strong evidence to sell, he desperately hung on to his stock as the price plummeted, proving that a head for numbers doesnt always translate to Wall Street know-how. Alas, Paulos (Innumeracy) says thats not always the case. Through most of this book, Paulos discusses various methods for predicting markets and offers thoughts on why people keep trying to perfect them. As the author relates in this funny, insightful little volume about attempts to bring order and science to the free-for-all that is the stock market, he himself was once a big investor (in WorldCom). The efficient-market theorists-many of whom believe the stock market is so inherently efficient that everything one needs to know about a company is reflected in its stock price-get the most thorough joshing from Paulos: never able to resist a joke, he tells one about how many efficient market theorists it takes to change a light bulb. Shocking in their obtuseness are the so-called Elliot Wave followers, who believe stocks operate according to an impossibly arcane series of numerical waves and cycles.
