In this talk, we go over a history of financial markets development and at the same time the finance academia’s evolution. We explore the historical interaction of finance academia vs the actual markets to hopefully understand whether research can be an engine to developing and designing markets. Topics like option pricing, Modigliani-Miller Theorem, stock market anomalies are discussed.
