330.122091724 SOT 139545
In this book, author takes up the question that, more
than any other, is central to one of the most crucial
problems the world faces today: Why do some countries
succeed at capitalism while others fail? In strong
opposition to the popular view that success is determined
by cultural differences, author finds that it actually
has everything to do with the legal structure of property
and property rights. Every developed nation in the world
at one time went through the transformation from
predominantly informal, extralegal ownership to a formal,
unified legal property system. In the West we-ve
forgotten that creating this system is also what allowed
people everywhere to leverage property into wealth.

This book goes beyond just an introductory treatment of
derivative securities, dealing with more advanced topics
and approaching the subject matter from a unique
perspective. At its core lies the concept that commodity
risk management decisions require an in-depth
understanding of speculative strategies, and vice versa.
The book offers a unified treatment of important concepts
and techniques that are useful in applying derivative
securities in the management of risk in commodity
markets. The book is divided into three parts. The first
part deals with the general framework for commodity risk
management, the second part focuses on the use of
derivative security contracts in commodity risk
management, and the third part deals with applications to
three specific situations.
