On the 6th of May 2010, the American stock markets plunged by almost 10% in only 20 minutes. By reconstructing this mysterious “flash crash”, Money and Speed uncovers a world of computer driven financial markets in which profit or loss are determined at the speed of light. What are the consequences of putting computers in charge of our financial system?
