    The Myth of the Rational Market: A History of Risk, Reward, and Delusion on Wall Street
    Tuesday Plenary, August 9, 2011 ~ 8:30 am–9:45 am

    Justin Fox is editorial director of the Harvard Business Review Group and the author of The Myth of the Rational Market, which Paul Krugman called "a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the mess we're in." Subtitled "A History of Risk, Reward, and Delusion on Wall Street," Fox's book is a fascinating history of the flawed and dangerous theories that have come to dominate economic discourse in the last 50 years—most notably, the theory that markets are rational. More than one reviewer noted how it read like a thriller. A national bestseller, it was also named a New York Times Notable Book of 2009 and Amazon's Best Business Book of the Year.
