That does not sound like me. Retarded, pointless or boring, maybe.

The appeal eludes me. I do wonder how different our F1 will be this year with the Dollar so strong v. the Euro. The last time I went downtown during F1, it was lousy with Eurotrash.

Bra retailer Frederick's of Hollywood goes bust - Fortune

Frederick’s has been privately held since a group of investors including the Harbinger Group HRG acquired it last year in a $24.8 million transaction. The retailer had previously filed for bankruptcy in 2000, but emerged in 2003 “with a strong balance sheet, new financing and positive sales momentum,” the company said at the time.

I'm sure the hedge fund that managed those BK's made out very well.

If Cruz or Rubio are not on the ticket, it will show how totally lost the Red Team really are. I for one, look forward you yet another all white male ticket.

Yeah, HF uses a fuck-ton of water, contaminates it, and then sequesters in below the water table. How down low can you go?

I just wonder what future Californian hydraulic frackers will use to extract oil, if prices in that market recover?

My second favorite, with Superman #1. I think they peaked with Automatic for the People and Out of Time. Better albums from beginning to end. Although I do love some so. central rain and 7 Chinese bros.

i still work

Almost 6pm here, a bit of thunder and a light rain outside. Just got off work, finished dinner and halfway through my first beer. The best time I can think of to start pontificating on matters I have little to no understanding of... Economics is hard

If what you are saying is correct...

Fat chance. But yeah the math part, making the interest rate the variable, and the current or future value of the security, the constant... would seem reasonable to me.

gab wrote:

One of the inputs of the model is the risk free interest rate.

Which we now know, is absurd. I'm saying that if you assumed that the options were the fairly valued part and solved for the interest rate, it might prove nominally useful in spotting the markets view of what the cost of borrowing should be.

gab wrote:

An options pricing model?

Where one of the functions is an interest rate. Knowing the value of the other varibles, one might be able to solve for the markets perceived value of borrowing.

Interest-rate curve

In practice, interest rates are not constant – they vary by tenor, giving an interest rate curve which may be interpolated to pick an appropriate rate to use in the Black–Scholes formula. Another consideration is that interest rates vary over time. This volatility may make a significant contribution to the price, especially of long-dated options.This is simply like the interest rate and bond price relationship which is inversely related.

There is no objective way to arrive at a "normal interest rate."

how you can juice inflation w/ negative interest rates.

If you put $100 in the bank and only get back 99$... perhaps you can find more productive use, spurring demand for products and services? Of course if that $100 bought 75 Euros and the $99 buys 100, things can get awkward.
