Good Derivatives: A Story of Financial and Environmental Innovation Richard L Sandor
Through the eyes of an inventor of new markets, Good Derivatives: A Story of Financial and Environmental Innovation tells the story of how financial innovation – a concept that is misunderstood and under attack – has been a positive force in the last four decades. If properly designed and regulated, these “good derivatives” can open vast possibilities to address a variety of global problems. Filled with provocative ideas, fascinating stories, and valuable lessons, it will provide both an insightful interpretation of the last forty years in capital and environmental markets and a vision of world finance for the next forty years. Dr. Richard Sandor, widely regarded as the “father of financial futures” and named by TIME magazine as the “father of carbon trading”, shared his insights on financial and environmental innovations.
