Ancient History

“Our plan of operation calls for being long or short up to a maximum of twenty seconds,”

Jack Aron of commodities trading firm J. Aron, about 1979, as recorded in William D. Cohan, Money and Power  (Kindle Locations 4679-4680) (2011).  Wouldn't get him to the quarter finals today, would it?

Footnote:  Another one of  those entirely meaningless titles.  It's a history of Goldman Sachs, but could just as well have been a history of the Chinese central government, not so?
