Wall Street is still recovering from its mistakes. So why is Ian Ayres pushing young people to leverage their portfolios? The Yale professor and best-selling author of Super Crunchers: Why Thinking-By-Numbers is the New Way To Be Smart, Ian Ayres, explains why his strategy is smarter in the long run. He also talks about high-powered incentives and what really drives people in this world: carrots or sticks? Put on your thinking caps as we crunch numbers with the Super Cruncher himself!

He will be speaking this Thursday, April 22 at 7:30 at UNLV's Boyd School of Law. The event is free and is hosted by UNLV's law school, the Yale Club of Nevada and the law firm, Greenberg Traurig.
