My blog, Shastra (http://www.fiquant.wordpress.com/%20), is a commentary on Financial Markets from a Quantitative, Economic, Sociological and Azimovian perspective. I love exploring the dynamics behind financial markets from an Azimovian psycho-historical angle and observing the markets as it unfolds and affects the world around.
Evolution and Global Financial Markets are quite interesting and in a very crude sense, very similar. Survival of the fittest, various systems/philosophies playing each other out, sociological factors/variables interacting to form new dynamics, Hand of God (Governments/Central Banks!).
I intend to use this blog to publish some articles of finance and some of my own ideas about financial markets vis-a-vis evolution.
In Sanskrit, Shastra means knowledge which is based on principles that are held to be timeless. However, it also means a treatise or commentary written in explanation of an idea. In case ,you have not realized it already, "fiquant" is a play on piquant (meaning engagingly stimulating or provocative) and also indicates financial quant.
