This volume presents an entirely new analysis of the economics of futures markets, that will be of interest to both specialists in the area and the generalist economist seeking a new perspective.

Through a combination of theoretical investigation and empirical application, three important themes are explored: the gains from futures trading and the efforts of emerging markets to reap these benefits; rationality and rival hypotheses of trader behaviour, such as noise trading; and the effect of regulatory tools on price formation.


'Extremely interesting and helpful for all those who are engaged or interested in this field … the authors make insightful contributions and also open up questions for further research.' - Weltwirtschaftliches Archiv Review of World Economics
