11.20.11 | Comment?

“The greatest conceptual danger is idolatry; believing that someone can write down a theory that encapsulates human behavior and thereby free you of the obligation to think for yourself,” said Emanuel Derman. In his new book, Models Behaving Badly, Derman writes about how the human element is ignored in quant models. Definitely worth reading.
