Anyone who attempts to explain the mystery of banking—a deliberately contrived mystery in many ways—apart from all of these aspects has not done justice to the topic. But, then again, this is an area in which justice has always been regarded as a liability.
Two types of bills currently exist on the Serbian financial market: T-bills issued by
the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Serbia, and NBS bills, issued by the
National Bank of Serbia. The main idea behind these financial instruments is to facil-
itate the development of the financial market in Serbia. This is in accordance with the
monetary policy of the National Bank of Serbia, but also an important aspect of the
economic restructuring program. Nevertheless, both types of bills are currently trad-

What is wrong is that adding money, in this case the medium of exchange function, to
a model when it is not required leads only to counterintuitive results. Wallace’s
proposal to add unit of account endowments to the Arrow-Debreu model to explain

not required and if appended to the model are inessential additions in the sense of...

programs and movies), but many North Americans are unfamiliar with some “British” English words.

when forced to describe a methodology for the amount of capital to risk when trading, few
traders have a concrete answer. Some make vague references to experts that recommended
risking one or two percent of portfolio equity on any trade. Others rely on intuition to determine
when to increase position size on a particular trade, always risking different amounts.
Experienced traders learn that as important as it is to have an effective method to determine
when to trade, it is equally...
