    PDF/EPUB Emily Lambert ß ß The Futures PDF ↠ futures download, The Futures PDFThis is a captivating book providing a cohesive historical account of the futures markets in Chicago As someone who lives in Chicago and deals with futures markets each day it would not be reasonable for me to ask Emily Lambert for any Am I biased because she provided a hilariously accurate account of the founder of the firm I work for? Am I biased because she took the time to explain just how much liuor you get when you order a drink at Ceres Cafe? Am I biased because the tall brick cold storage warehouse in Fulton Market that she described in detail now houses one of my favorite restaurants? SomewhatThe truth that others seem to be wrestling with is that this is not a futures textbook I've come across uite a few futures textbooks They don't resemble this in format or in diction The back cover describes The Futures as a rich and dramatic history of commodities exchanges and that's exactly what it is It's a valuable f

    PDF/EPUB Emily Lambert ß ß The Futures PDF ↠ futures download, The Futures PDFThis is a popular history of the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange I especially enjoyed the first half of the book which told the story of how these markets grew up mostly organically from the buying and selling of agricultural commodities produced in Chicago's hinterland corn oats soybeans lard eggs butter and even onions In fact onion trading got so heated in the 1950s that the federal government had to shut it down The very concept of the futures contract came from these small at first trading clubs with just a few hundred members Once the futures contract was invented these contracts for real life farm goods commodities were soon abstracted into

    PDF/EPUB Emily Lambert ß ß The Futures PDF ↠ futures download, The Futures PDFI don't know how to sugarcoat this so I'm just going to say it This book sucked The Futures was terrible If you want to learn about futures markets for the love of God do NOT read this book If you DO want to just read chapter after chapter describing the inside of old Chicago buildings and listing the names of individuals who at one point had a tangential connection with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange congratulations this is the book for youEvidence of how unpleasant this reading experience was I started this book on September 16th and didn't finish it until NOVEMBER It's only 240 pages for crying out loud It completely killed my momentum and probably cost me a good 3 4 books on the yearThe thing I still can't get over is that you could read this entire book and if you didn't know what a futures contract was prior to cracking it open you wou

    PDF/EPUB Emily Lambert ß ß The Futures PDF ↠ futures download, The Futures PDFWhat most of the other reviewers miss is that this book is not intended to explain the uses or inner workings of the various futures and derivatives markets that developed in Chicago in the 20th century It's clear that Lambert was not attempting this at all Rather The Futures is a narrative history that fairly accurately and accessibly traces the evolution of the CBOT and Merc and explains the origins of the various markets and contracts that developed overtime My advice to the other reviewers that were disappointed that Lambert did not do a better job explaining the markets would be to pick up one of the numerous textbooks that Lamb

    PDF/EPUB Emily Lambert ß ß The Futures PDF ↠ futures download, The Futures PDFSo I guess I know a little bit about futures markets than I did before I started reading this book But not as much as I should given that I just read a whole book about them This book is long on minutiae about the history of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade and short on explanations of how futures markets exactly work
