Trillion Dollar Bet

Ideas from Teachers


(High School/Early College-Graduate)
This idea could be used with NOVA's "Trillion Dollar Bet" program. Searching for the hedge fund "LTCM" with a search engine yields a huge number of sites with criticism of LTCM's financial practices. I recommend that those investigating derivatives browse these sites for information.

The program transcript can be useful for viewers who have difficulty with English, or for students to carefully review and discuss what was said on the program. I found that adding my own topic headings with approximate timings to the transcript makes it easy to locate relevant sections of the program for discussion purposes.
