  • THE FUTURE WAS THE MARKET

    The Future was the Market
    A 'contingent claim' is another term for a financial derivative with a payout dependent on the realization of some future contingent event. In turn, the future prices of these contingent claims become new future events on which further contingent claims are written. When ‘The Market’ is defined as this endless material chain, argued Elie Ayache, time drops out of the equation and the future, literally, is no longer ahead.
