It could be argued that the prevailing sense of interest rate predictability at the time of the “conundrum” combined with a banking system willing to take huge duration exposures would have made a policy of bond sales ineffective. But it should be remembered that this sense of interest rate predictability was itself deliberately nurtured by the Federal Reserve policy of a “measured pace” in increasing the Federal funds rate.

In this chapter, we study the mathematical structure of a simple oneperiod model of a financial market. We consider a finite number of assets. Their initial prices at time t = 0 are known, their future prices at time t = 1 are described as random variables on some probability space. Trading takes place at time t = 0. Already in this simple model, some basic principles of mathematical finance appear very clearly. In Section 1.2, we single out those models which satisfy a condition of market efficiency: There are no trading opportunities which yield a profit without any downside risk.
