After having made this remark the presentation turns into an axiomatical one: it is going to be acknowledged in particular phrases what arbitrage is ready and what the results are if markets don't permit for safe arbitrage possibilities.

Kapitalismens första hjälpen: En defibrillator för en klokare ekonomi

Det vi ska beskriva i den här boken handlar om att vrida om vår syn på ekonomi. Ordet ekonomi har som många andra av våra akademiska begrepp sitt ursprung i grekiskan, ordagrant ungefär; hus (oikos) och lag (nomos). Utan att göra en långrandig historisk diskussion om ekonomi är det vår uppfattning att ordet lag i sammanhanget är missvisande och än värre normativt och styrande för hur det är möjligt att tänka om ekonomi.

The term 'arbitrage' (or in a narrower sense: 'arbitration' or 'compound arbitration') originally was used for a calculation designed to determine the cheapest way of making a remittance between two countries. When three places are involved the calculation is called 'simple arbitration', when more: 'compound arbitration' (cf. keyword 'Arbitration of Exchange' in MUNN (1983)). The calculation includes various (cross) exchange rates and interest rates as well as transaction costs at various places.

This can analytically be confirmed by substituting P~ in the aggregated version of (34) by the expression in (37). 7. SYNOPSIS OF THE MAIN RESULTS We studied a set of mean-variance based financial asset pricing models. They all share the following structural properties: - existence of a price functional which relates the end-ofperiod wealth of portfolios to their current market values; - linearity of the price functional; - generation of the price functional by a scarcity indicator; generation of the scarcity indicator by some mean-variance efficient portfolio; - generation of efficient portfolios by two portfolios which correspond to the expectation operator and the cost functional of the current price system, respectively.

E. together with (A6). e. e. e. (AB), then there is a linear cost functional which assigns to each net portfolio change its uniquely determined market value. PROOF: From Proposition 2 and Lemmata 4 and 5 it remains to show that c(az) = ac(z) holds for any ~eat number a. Because any real number is the limit of a Cauchy-sequence of rational numbers (a i /i=I,2, ... ) it is easily seen by continuity (AB) that (c(a i z)/i=I,2, ... z) (lim ai)c(z) which completes our i i I I I proof. In sum, what usually is the self-understanding starting point of any elaborated asset pricing theory: a linear cost functional, has been derived here from explicit assumptions: - infinite divisibility of assets - absence of transaction costs - effective arbitration - absence of riskless spreads - continuity of prices.
