Abstract: “This isn’t rocket science” I often hear from Wall Street executives. “I agree,” I tell them – “this is harder than rocket science!” Join me on a tour of amazing opportunities and crushing failures as I describe how physics and physicists have played the roles of both darling and devil of Wall Street, and where we go from here. Wall Street and Main Street desperately need physicists working on markets, but not the way most people think.
