Fischer Black celebrating


Vice President
<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=15 width="95%" align=center border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top width="100%" bgColor=#e6e6cc colSpan=2>I'm celebrating Fischer Black on November 24th in New York with free t-shirts, books, free food and drink (from Bloomberg). Don't miss it.

Fischer Blacks two books are being republished, Business Cycles and Equilibrium by Wiley this month and Exploring General Equilibrium by MIT Press in January. If you only know Fischer through Black-Scholes, the Black CAPM Black-Derman-Toy, Black-Litterman and Black Karasinsky, you missed his most controversial work which is detailed in these books.

Aaron Brown and Bloomberg are celebrating on November 24th in New York with a free event featuring speakers, t-shirt and book giveaways, food and drink. You can sign up using BU on Bloomberg or by emailing NASeminar@Bloomberg.net. This event will be oversubscribed, so dont delay.
