  • "Verano de 2009. El FBI detiene a Sergey Aleynikov, un extrabajador de Goldman Sachs acusado de robar el c©đdigo fuente de su antigua empresa. A Aleynikov, programador de operaciones comerciales de alta frecuencia, se le deniega la libertad bajo fianza alegando que, de caer en malas manos, el c©đdigo robado puede usarse para manipular los mercados de forma injusta. ℗¿Significa esto que las manos de Goldman Sachs son las buenas? Si Goldman puede manipular los mercados, ℗¿pueden tambi©♭n hacerlo otros bancos? ℗¿Por qu©♭ el c©đdigo que permite operar a Goldman Sachs es tan importante que cuando descubri©đ que un empleado lo hab©Ưa copiado, la empresa decidi©đ llamar nada menos que al FBI? Si este c©đdigo es tan valioso y peligroso para los mercados financieros, ℗¿c©đmo pudo hacerse con ©♭l alguien que hab©Ưa trabajado en la empresa apenas dos a©łos? Y a todo esto, ℗¿qu©♭ son las operaciones comerciales de alta frecuencia y por qu©♭ se han convertido en la ©ðltima revoluci©đn de Wall Street? Michael Lewis decidi©đ que era hora de encontrar respuesta a estas preguntas y su b©ðsqueda lo llev©đ a la sala acristalada de un rascacielos neoyorquino. All©Ư conoci©đ a los flash boys. ©⁹sta es su historia."
  • "In this book the author argues that post-crisis Wall Street continues to be controlled by large banks and explains how a small, diverse group of Wall Street men have banded together to reform the financial markets. A report on a high-tech predator stalking the equity markets, this book is about a small group of Wall Street guys who figure out that the U.S. stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders and that, post-financial crisis, the markets have become not more free but less, and more controlled by the big Wall Street banks. Working at different firms, they come to this realization separately; but after they discover one another, they band together and set out to reform the financial markets. This they do by creating an exchange in which high-frequency trading, source of the most intractable problems, will have no advantage whatsoever. The characters are each completely different from what you think of when you think "Wall Street guy." Several have walked away from jobs in the financial sector that paid them millions of dollars a year. From their new vantage point they investigate the big banks, the world's stock exchanges, and high-frequency trading firms as they have never been investigated, and expose the many strange new ways that Wall Street generates profits. The author shines a light into the darkest corners of the financial world, where anyone in contact with the market, even a retirement account, is part of the story. But in the end, this is the story of people who have somehow preserved a moral sense in an environment where you don't get paid for that; they have perceived an institutionalized injustice and are willing to go to war to fix it."@en

  • "Nowadays, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. In Flash Boys , Michael Lewis tells the explosive story of how one group of ingenious oddballs and misfits set out to expose what was going on. It's the story of what it's like to declare war on some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. It's about taking on an entire system. And it's about the madness that has taken hold of the financial markets today."
  • "Présentation de l'éditeur : "If you thought Wall Street was about alpha males standing in trading pits hollering at each other, think again. That world is dead. Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your money don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing. This is a market that's rigged, out of control and out of sight; a market in which the chief need is for speed; and in which traders would sell their grandmothers for a microsecond. Blink, and you'll miss it. In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis tells the explosive story of how one group of ingenious oddballs and misfits set out to expose what was going on. It's the story of what it's like to declare war on some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. It's about taking on an entire system. And it's about the madness that has taken hold of the financial markets today. You won't believe it until you've read it.""
