Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt

This book has been all over the news lately and is a great look into the highly topical subject of predatory High Frequency Trading by an amazing author.

Flash Boys is about a small group of Wall Street guys who figure out that the U.S. stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders and that, post–financial crisis, the markets have become not more free but less, and more controlled by the big Wall Street banks. Working at different firms, they come to this realization separately; but after they discover one another, the flash boys band together and set out to reform the financial markets. http://www.amazon.com/Flash-Boys-Wall-Street-Revolt/dp/0393244660

    I've got a table in the back of the main room. I don't have a paper copy of the book but look for the girl in a black shirt with a beer, a salad, and an ipad.

    I don't know if I can get to this. I have been really busy job searching and have not even opened the book yet. I definitely want to try to get to one of these soon though!

    Hi! I can't wait to join you guys in the next discussion. Do you have any suggestions on where I can find the book for a little cheaper than Amazon's offers? I tried seeing if my local library held it but there are literally over 300 holds on it (must be a good book!) Hope to see you guys soon

      Hi Emily! Yeah, I know it's been pretty popular. I ended up having to get it off of Amazon myself. Welcome to the group!
