Beneath Haunted Waters

The Tragic Tale of Two B-24s Lost in the Sierra Nevada Mountains during World War II

Author: Peter Stekel

Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield

ISBN: 1493025325

Category: History

Page: 328

Beneath Haunted Waters is a story of the crews from two B-24 Liberator bombers that disappeared in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains in early December, 1943. One plane wasn't found until 1955, at the bottom of a reservoir. The other plane was discovered in 1960 at the bottom of a lake, high in the mountains. Concerning this second B-24, the co-pilot's father had died the previous year after dedicating his life to searching for his son. He missed the crash site by only ten miles. This isn't the story of movers and shakers and grand designs. It's the story of regular boys - they called young men "boys" in the 1930s and '40s - going off to war because it was adventurous and because that was what boys did. And it’s the story of how they died at very young ages. Our country lost more airplanes and crews to training accidents than in combat against the Japanese, and these deaths from accidents continued when the boys got to the Pacific and Europe. Beneath Haunted Waters is the story of these two planes and their crews and of how they trained and why they died.

The "Frozen Airman" discovery created a media storm and a mystery that drew author Peter Stekel to investigate. What did happen to the four-man crew who perished on a routine navigation training flight in 1942, 150 miles off-course from its reported destination?..."--P. 4 of cover.

Adaptive Markets

Financial Evolution at the Speed of Thought

Author: Andrew W. Lo

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400887763

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 504

A new, evolutionary explanation of markets and investor behavior Half of all Americans have money in the stock market, yet economists can't agree on whether investors and markets are rational and efficient, as modern financial theory assumes, or irrational and inefficient, as behavioral economists believe—and as financial bubbles, crashes, and crises suggest. This is one of the biggest debates in economics and the value or futility of investment management and financial regulation hang on the outcome. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Lo cuts through this debate with a new framework, the Adaptive Markets Hypothesis, in which rationality and irrationality coexist. Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, Adaptive Markets shows that the theory of market efficiency isn't wrong but merely incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. Lo's new paradigm explains how financial evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thought—a fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation. A fascinating intellectual journey filled with compelling stories, Adaptive Markets starts with the origins of market efficiency and its failures, turns to the foundations of investor behavior, and concludes with practical implications—including how hedge funds have become the Galápagos Islands of finance, what really happened in the 2008 meltdown, and how we might avoid future crises. An ambitious new answer to fundamental questions in economics, Adaptive Markets is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how markets really work.
