The Intricate Game offers a unique, holistic view to the fascinating world and history of OTC commodity derivatives. The book not only describes the legitimate OTC derivatives business and its regulations, including exempt commodity markets and commodity instruments, but also provides detailed discussions of modern day Ponzi schemes, tracing their history back to the nineteen-century bucket shop operations. It is essential reading for derivatives professionals, legislators and regulators whose job is to take the vitally important derivatives business into the future.
It sets the development of the OTC commodity derivatives market in the broader context of changes in society, culture, politics and regulation. The book examines turning points in the financial system, such as the market panics in 1907, the financial deregulation in the 1970s and 2000s, the global financial crisis of 2008, and the commodity supercycle in the new millennium, which set the macro-backdrop for both the growth and the regulation of OTC commodities market.
With numerous detailed cases, the author describes how OTC commodities operate, how they have been regulated, and the challenges that market participants, organizers and regulators face now and encountered in the past, along with the myriads of frauds and manipulations that have been plaguing the industry since over a century ago, providing insights into the evolution of an important aspect of finance that has been shaping our everyday life.
