satyajit das: the crash of '87
Satyajit Das examines the stock exchange crash of 1987 and what we have learned from it at Australia Speaks, our 50th anniversary celebration.
Satyajit Das is an internationally respected expert in finance, with over 35 years’ experience in capital markets advising banks, investors, corporations and central banks throughout the world.
In 2006 Das published the international best-seller and highly prescient Traders, Guns & Money: Knowns and Unknowns in the Dazzling World of Derivatives, a satirical insider’s account of derivatives trading. His articles have anticipated the sovereign debt crisis; drawn attention to the unsustainable nature of China’s economic success, the risk of slowdown in growth and the ineffectiveness of policy options; and identified Australia’s fragile prospects and looming slowdown and challenges. His latest book, Extreme Money: Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk (2011), 'takes a knife to global finance and financiers to reveal its inner workings without fear or favour' (Nouriel Roubini, Professor of Economics, NYU).
Das features in the Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, PBS Frontline series Money, Power & Wall Street and BBC TV documentary Tricks with Risk, and was recently named one of the Most Influential 50 Bankers and Investors Who Move Markets by Bloomberg.
