Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Embedding maths now works - see MathJax documentation for more information.

I've turned off using $ and $$ as delimiters, so you have to use \ [ \ ] and \ ( \ ) instead. You also need to use either "Plain text" or "HTML Formatted" for your comment.

I look forward to the horrors that this will lead to!

Let's see \( \dots \)

According to Yves Smith (Econned, p.149) a trader actually sold a financial instrument with a guaranteed return of

\[ \max(0, \mathord{\hbox{NP}} \times 7 \times ( (L^2 \times {1 \over L} ) - (L^4 \times L^{-3})) \times {\mathord{\hbox{days in the month}} \over 360 })\]
where \(\mathord{\hbox{NP}} = \$ 600 \) and \( L\) is the 6-month dollar LIBOR rate. (Somebody actually paid \( \$ 4\times {10^6} \)  a month for 3 years for this).
