Notes
  • The traditional pricing methodology in finance values derivative securities as redundant assets that have no impact on equilibrium prices and allocations. This paper considers a model with incomplete markets in which the valuation of derivative securities cannot be treated independently from the valuation of the primary securities. The model constitutes a framework for the analysis of the consequences of financial innovation (creation of new contracts or modification of existing contracts). We provide a numerical counterexample to the popular belief that financial innovations that increase the volatilities of traded securities are “badâ€. In this example the introduction of an option increases the volatility of the rate of return on the underlying stock, yet the creation of this asset is unanimously supported by investors.
