Believe it or not, the most sophisticated computer “models” running Wall Street are simply Excel spreadsheets. Even the very top firms using more proprietary software cannot cope with the global economy. They lack the depth of models as well a databases. This has always been the specialty of Princeton.

Might as well use stone wheels. It takes a lot more than flat model formulas.
