What the Heck are Futures & Derivatives Anyway? That was the apt title of last week’s Better Money Decisions podcast, which featured Exchange Analytics president Larry Israel on host Kate Stalter’s show. Larry’s drew from his 40 years of experience at the Chicago Board of Trade/CME to give listeners a crystal clear futures 101 primer.
Larry illustrated effective uses of the markets for commercial hedgers and discussed the structure of market regulation and protections, industry growth, regulation vs. innovation, speculation vs. gambling and much more.
