  • Hence, the value of a European call option is determined by the difference between the current price of the underlying asset and the strike price. If this distance is positive, i.e. if the option is in the money, then the current payoff of the position is positive.

  • Contemporary interest in food is not confined to pleasure in its consumption, but extends in every direction: to its economic importance, the semiotics of food taste, the dangers of food additives and the politics of food security. We live in societies as dominated by food preferences as by sexual preferences, as obsessed about eating too little as by eating too much. In addition our interest in food is associated, for good and evil, with our interest in ‘nature’.

  • The presence of nontraded goods in our model increases the relative volatility of nominal and real exchange rates relative to the volatility in the model without nontraded goods. An important aspect of the behavior of exchange rates in our model with nontraded goods hinges on the agent's inability to optimally share the risk associated with country-speci¯c shocks to productivity in the nontraded goods sector. In response to a (persistent) positive shock to productivity in this sector, agents wish to consume and invest more.

  • The effect is to leave the North with positive rates of genuine savings, and many resource-rich Southern countries with negative or near-zero rates. This distracts attention from analysis of the ‘environmental space’ occupied by economies with strong, traditionally-defined economic growth — and excessive consumption of the world’s resources. 23 Many people argue that reducing Northern consumption levels is central to curbing excessive resource depletion and pollution and reducing global inequalities in energy use and other forms of consumption.

Most of all, part of these effects are going to be positively related to the speed of adop- tion of the new technology.
