   Disruptive Markets  

   Managing Uncertainty    

A 'Socrates Gadfly' Libary

These following pieces of work listed here are magnificent in their own right, disruptive to common consensus and profound.


These texts are thinking without social boundaries, they were ahead of the curve when they were written and create a new academic game-changing space which often captures a 'cult-like' following. While the contextual focus of interest is Finance, Markets, Risk Management and Behaviour [Economics], I seriously recommend a deep peruse of these works.

Game Chaning Books

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

This is a pivotal book in the world of risk management, substantially questions how the population looks at unexpected events and why commercial risk management fails. Nassim Taleb is a leading author on facing and understanding uncertainty and this is the second book in the sequence of reading.


Traders Guns and Money is a wickedly comic exposé of the culture, games and pure deceptions played out every day in trading rooms around the world. And played out with other people’s money.


What makes this book creditible is the author, Satyajit Das. He has a relatively abjunct sometimes disjointed way of writing but he is from the markets.


By Ludwig von Mises

Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises 29 September 1881 – 10 October 1973) was a theoretical Austrian School economist. He is best known for his work on praxeology, a study of human choice and action.


Mises's writings have exerted significant influence on the libertarian movement in the United States since the mid-20th century.
