The existing paradigm in academic finance has dominated finance education, practice and regulation for over 40 years. Yet as a scientific explanation of its subject it is a failure that has led time and again to financial disaster. This book describes the models of the existing paradigm, the extraordinary principles on which they are founded, and why they imply a trivialised world fundamentally different from reality. In doing so it articulates the misgivings of generations of finance students, and exposes the consequences of the academic capture of the financial sector.
