I wonder if anybody thought of IF derivatives.
Suppose I want to buy options for various claims, for various points in time.
Or would like to bet that in 2 years total value of claims A and B will be
between values of claims C and D. Or that the derivatives market
will outpace single claims market.
Would the conventional market math work here? Futures? Indexes?
Arbitrage? Will discovery of new facts and publication of new ideas
have effects similar to those the discoveries of new resources and
technologies have on the existing "price claims" market?
