There is, perhaps, no better symbol of the American economic system than the New York Stock Exchange. Today, while still the largest by stock market in the world by trade volume, the NYSE is one of many global markets. And much of the yelling and screaming has been replaced by the gentle whir of computers and algorithmic trading. Technology moves markets. But with algos and dark pools and even the occasional hacked Tweet that wrongly sends markets tumbling in seconds, the technology cuts many ways. Where will it take us next? Few would have better insight than Lawrence Leibowitz, Chief Operating Officer of the NYSE/Euronext. Larry has responsibility for operations management, global cash execution and global listings, and he joins us now. (Originally broadcast 5-5-13 on The John Batchelor Show)

About this site
This is the show I've always wanted to do.
Given all the arguing that dominates television, radio and the web -- the he said/she said, the all-or-nothing verbal warfare, the relentless search for scandal or quick quip -- the most simple element that drives important, human communication is often missing: Smart conversation.
Yes, there is a space that exists between the screaming -- between the one-sided agendas, the caustic commentary and irrational judgement that defines audiences down and drives much of today's content.
There is space between the noise. That's where "Conversations with Thinkers" sits.
At its best, smart conversation informs, excites and prods. It reveals, intrigues and explains. Always, it must entertain.
Here you'll find conversation on politics, business, foreign affairs, culture, economics, sports, public policy and more.
"Conversations with Thinkers" is for someone who wants to explore ideas in a rational way. Someone who wants to connect.
Thanks for listening. I welcome your feedback.
