On August 29, 1994, Business Week ran a feature article entitled 'Dream Team'. It was about a man called John W. Meriwether and the team of brilliant quants he had gathered around him to conduct what the magazine called 'the biggest gamble of his life'. The gamble was to see whether, in a partnership calling itself Long Term Capital Management (LTCM), they could outperform his old firm, Salomon Brothers, in the bond markets, with a fraction of Salomons' capital and staff.
