Chaos Monkeys is a memoir of Antonio Garcia Martinez's time working as a coder at Goldman Sachs, as a startup employee and founder, and as a product manager at Facebook. Martinez began working at Goldman Sachs after college as a pricing quant, which is industry slang for a programmer who builds models for pricing credit derivatives. Quants had low status at the firm and Martinez became disillusioned with employees' reliance on the annual bonus and the gambling-heavy culture of the workplace. In late 2007, he applied for and was offered a job at Adchemy, a startup in California that was developing tools to buy advertising on Google's real-time bidding engine, the system Google uses to determine which bidder gets advertising space for every Google search.

Although it is among the oldest of market institutions, the auction is ubiquitous in today's economy, used for everything from government procurement to selling advertising on the Internet to course assignment at MIT's Sloan School. Yet beyond the small number of economists who specialize in the subject, few people understand how auctions really work. This concise, accessible, and engaging book explains both the theory and the practice of auctions. It describes the main auction formats and pricing rules, develops a simple model to explain bidder behavior, and provides a range of real-world examples. The authors explain what constitutes an auction and how auctions can be modeled as games of asymmetric information - that is, games in which some players know something that other players do not. They characterize behavior in these strategic situations and maintain a focus on the real world by illustrating their discussions with examples that include not just auctions held by eBay and Sotheby's but those used by Google, the US Treasury, TaskRabbit, and charities. Listeners will begin to understand how economists model auctions and how the rules of the auction shape bidder incentives. They will appreciate the role auctions play in our modern economy and understand why these selling mechanisms are so resilient. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt.

Attention-based buying is a very common investment decision-making practice for individual investors. As compared to institutional investors, individuals are strongly biased towards buying attention-grabbing stocks and relying upon non-genuine news from the Internet. Further, they have less sophisticated investment techniques available and hence, their investment behavior is often influenced by attention. The two fundamental questions of this book are first, how can attention actually be measured and second, does attention-based investing influence the pricing of stocks? The book presents a relatively new approach for measuring investor attention and applies the Internet search volume on Google as the decisive proxy. The study suggests that a relatively large increase in the Google search volume is associated with a rise in the level of investor attention. Based on this assumption, the book empirically shows that investor attention and stock price movements are interrelated and that by enhancing the level of investor attention, a company has the power to temporarily increase its market value.

This book mainly focuses on defining profit models, on how many main kinds of profit models there are, how profit models can change a company, and how to tailor a profit model to the needs of a certain company. In this context, profit models are classified as fixed-income, remaining-profit and profit-sharing, admission, toll, parking, fuel and sharing fees, profit sources, customer pricing, auction, combined pricing, etc. The logic behind all these profit models will be analyzed in detail and numerous micro-cases will be introduced. All of the micro-cases discussed are the best profit model practices used by outstanding enterprises, mainly from China and the USA (including HomeAway, Priceline, Tencent, Sina, Google, the Voice of China, CSPN and so on). These models will be complemented by a wealth of figures and additional tools to help readers better understand the principle of profit models. As such, the book not only explains "why" entrepreneurs preferred to apply a specific kind of profit model and not others, but also answers "how" they derived that model.
