How much of a market student am I

There’s a 190 names list at Wikipedia for people related to Wall Street. I asked myself: how much do you know about Wall St by counting the number of authors you have read, you have heard of and how much should be on your list:

 

Total: 190

read: 7

Heard of: 25

It is to say that I have covered just 13% of general knowledge by hearing some names and only 4% by reading at least one book of such author.

 

Since the important thing is what you don’t know, this is the list I will check, one by one, of wall st names and look for some book in my local library.
