Host Laurie Taylor talks with Zaloom about the stock market’s gradual transition from face-to-face exchanges made on the trading room floor to internet based trading and how this move into the digital realm effects the culture and business of global trade markets. You can listen to archived audio of the discussion on the BBC’s Thinking Allowed website.
We also have an excerpt from the book.
