Ask 'Why?'

"As you've all realized in your short time through your internships, for the most part this industry — and when I'm talking about this industry I'm talking about proprietary trading firms, exchanges, some the other service providers that support the business, so the industry at large — we really function more as applied science or applied technology companies, right?"
