Feliciano School of Business - Room 380

The members of the Feliciano School of Business, Faculty Development and Research Committee invite you to its FSofB Research Colloquium.       

Title: Relativistic Arbitrage: The Financial Crisis of 2308
 
Author: Dr. David Axelrod, Department of Economics
 
Date and Time:  April 13 - 1:30 p.m.
Venue:  Room 380 
  
Abstract: 
The presentation is intended to be a fun and intriguing speculation on what happens when banks are on high velocity space transports, where the effects of relativity cause appreciable time dilation. In such a case time moves slower on the ship than back on earth. The implication is that while the bank observes itself compounding interest as they have agreed to, they are observed by a customer back on earth compounding at a rate slower than agreed to, hence creating the potential arbitrage. Attendees are encouraged to bring their imagination and share their most creative ideas.
