The Alternative Investment Market
Much of the post crash debate on regulating financial markets is focused on negative externalities. But some investors like a lot of risk and some markets provide it. AIM in London is one. Its growth and the concept’s export to other geographies may tell us something about how bigger markets work and how they might be regulated.
