Redesigning the Stock Market
A Fractal Approach

First Edition

August 2016 | 232 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
While success in business has become synonymous with the meaning of life, this bearing comes at the high cost of damaged ecosystems. The underlying business-asset mentality has equated value with superficial and short-sighted actions and rewards.

Redesigning the Stock Market aims to alter the core of the global business machinery by integrating more long-sighted heuristics into trading mechanisms. These trading mechanisms encompass both the macro-environment related to the stock market and the micro-act of stock trading.

The book covers the following key areas:
- Discussion on a fractal basis for analysis of the macro financial environment and the stock market.
- History of stock market crashes and lessons we can derive from them.
- External changes that affect the stock market.
- Suggestions for redesigning the stock market to minimize future financial crises and ensure business and societal sustainability.

The timing of the book could not have been more opportune…This book looks into this in a very philosophical and thought-provoking manner… The book reflects Malik’s depth of thinking, profound knowledge about business processes and his ability to take a contrarian view. The philosophy with which it is written is simple…. no other book has looked into the need for redesigning of stock markets. So, such a book is rare and one should not miss an opportunity to read it when it makes an appearance as it has now. It provides a fresh line of thinking towards how stock markets can be reshaped to minimize future financial crises and ensure business and societal sustainability. The book is highly recommended for those who would like to take part in the process of change as envisioned by Pravir Malik and particularly to those who are interested in the complex worlds of business, finance and stock markets.
