Book Description

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
