Please join us for a research talk with Daniel Beunza, Associate Professor of Management at Cass Business School, on his new book entitled Taking the Floor: Models, Morals, and Management in a Wall Street Trading Room. Based on extensive research in a Wall Street derivatives-trading room, Taking the Floor considers how the culture of financial organizations might change in order for them to remain healthy, even in times of crises. In particular, Beunza explores how the extensive use of financial models and trading technologies has exerted a far-ranging and troubling influence on Wall Street.
