Economy and Finance: Books, Movies and TV shows

Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street (2010): In the financial world, quants refer to the mathematical and computing wizards responsible for building complex models in the engine room of the global financial system. They are often involved in high-frequency and automated trading. During the financial crisis, the products designed by these quants brought Wall Street to its knees.

This documentary examines how the financial system has become increasingly dependent on mathematical models attempting to quantify human and economic behavior and the huge risks they entail.

Black Wednesday (or the 1992 Pound Sterling Crisis): On September 16, 1992, Britain crashed out of the Exchange Rate Mechanism, a system that was meant to keep currencies from changing too much before the euro was introduced. This led to a sharp drop in the value of the pound. On that day, which is now called "Black Wednesday," the value of the pound fell 4.3%, the Bank of England burned through nearly £10bn worth of reserves, which was a huge amount at the time, and interest rates were raised twice, all in an attempt to keep the value of the pound up that failed.

This documentary goes into depth about what happened before "Black Wednesday" and what the main point of view is about how the German and British economies are run.

Fortune Seekers | Planet Finance is an alluring and lesser-known realm for retail traders, especially in Japan, where traditional savings yield minimal interest. The foreign exchange market becomes an accessible avenue, with 'Mrs. Watanabe' representing over a million Japanese individuals navigating this financial landscape.

Journey into the world of retail traders in the Japanese forex market with this documentary. Within this market, currencies engage in a zero-sum game where one person's gain translates to another's loss. Who reaps the rewards when you encounter losses?
