Una guía estratégica para la economía de la red
Carl Shapiro - 1998-11-19
Calificación de Goodreads
Chapter 1 of Information Rules begins with a description of the change brought on by technology at the close of the century--but the century described is not this one, it's the late 1800s. One hundred years ago, it was an emerging telephone and electrical network that was transforming business. Today it's the Internet. The point? While the circumstances of a particular era may be unique, the underlying principles that describe the exchange of goods in a free-market economy are the same. And the authors, Carl Shapiro and Hal Varian, should know. Shapiro is Professor of Business Strategy at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and has also served as chief economist at the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department. Varian is the Dean of the School of Information Management and Systems at UC Berkeley. Together they offer a deep knowledge of how economic systems work coupled with first-hand experience of today's network economy. They write: Sure, today's business world is different in a myriad of ways from that of a century ago. But many of today's managers are so focused on the trees of technological change that they fail to see the forest: the underlying economic forces that determine success and failure. Shapiro and Varian go to great lengths to purge this book of the technobabble and forecasting of an electronic woo-woo land that's typical in books of this genre. Instead, with their feet on the ground, they consider how to market and distribute goods in the network economy, citing examples from industries as diverse as airlines, software, entertainment, and communications. The authors cover issues such as pricing, intellectual property, versioning, lock-in, compatibility, and standards. Clearly written and presented, Information Rules belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who has an interest in today's network economy--entrepreneurs, managers, investors, students. If there was ever a textbook written on how to do business in the information age, this book is it. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards

@JeffreyTowson Microsoft also has a chief economist. The teams interact. He trained many people at Berkeley in the software industry. Hal's book Information Rules is foundational. His work on network effects was seminal. This lecture by Hal is one of my favorites.      fuente

Bill Gurley: "My favorite book of all time is a book called 'Complexity.' It’s an analysis of multi-variable nonlinear systems and how they behave. And that includes things like stock market, weather or pandemics."      fuente

@JohnArnoldFndtn @Jesse_Livermore Read Clayton's book and you learn four years for a college degree was chosen because Harvard needed the money years ago. There's no reason other than that for the degree to require four years.      fuente

1/ One of the most influential books I have read about investing is "Expectations Investing" by Rappaport and Mauboussin. A revised edition is coming soon. The book's focus on identifying value-price gaps based on cash flow was immediately attractive to me.      fuente
Fractales y finanzas. Una aproximación matemática a los mercados book cover
Fractales y finanzas. Una aproximación matemática a los mercados
arriesgar, perder y ganar
Benoit Mandelbrot - 2004-08-03 (publicado por primera vez en 1997)
Calificación de Goodreads
El matemático de origen polaco Benoît Mandelbrot es considerado como el «padre de la geometría fractal». Los fractales –estructuras geométricas de diversos niveles de tamaño, cada una de los cuales repite a pequeña escala la estructura total– son idóneos para mensurar la rugosidad de la Naturaleza y nos permiten acercarnos geométricamente a estructuras tan poco euclideanas –en realidad, tan barrocas– como una nube, el contorno de la costa, los meandros de un río, las ráfagas de viento, un pedazo de coliflor... y, al parecer, una jornada en la Bolsa.En efecto, en este libro, accesible a lectores no especializados, pero que fascinará tanto a expertos financieros como a matemáticos, sus autores muestran cómo aplicar los fractales al comportamiento de los mercados bursátiles. Fenómenos como las caídas y los repuntes bruscos de los índices o las llamadas «burbujas financieras» no siempre resultan explicables a partir de los análisis económicos clásicos. En cambio, las «finanzas fractales» permiten reducir a una idea matemática sencilla procesos tan complejos como la variación de los precios o la convertibilidad de una moneda en otra.
Tren Griffin
I met Mandelbrot only once at this lecture at before he passed away in 2010. He wrote the book "The Misbehavior of Markets: A Fractal View of Financial Turbulence." I suggest you read this book for yourself (even though it is not an easy book to read).      fuente

3/ The book in the last tweet came out in 1988 and another one from the same author in 1991 (below). These books and others plus reading lots of papers helped me learn about the relationship between the technology and the business. That was a specialty I decided to develop.      fuente
