A Bit About
This is the Green Room. More specifically, this is a blog that aims to illuminate four major fields -- finance, risk, data, and math -- along with many tangents into photography, cars, maps, technology and the occasional quote from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
TGR enjoys a position in FT Alphaville's blogroll and has been mentioned in Dealbook by the New York Times. Posts are also occasionally cross-published on Seeking Alpha. TGR's author has extensive experience in finance and is a CFA charterholder.
TGR takes its name from the film My Fellow Americans, in which the following rapid dialogue takes place as two former presidents try to rush a tour through the White House:
Douglas: This is the Green Room.
Kramer: It's a room.
Douglas: It's green.
Kramer: Hence it's name.
Douglas: Any questions?
Kramer: Not from me.
Douglas: Okay, then shall we...?
