We first present a brief review of nonlinear asset-pricing models and contributions in which such models have been used as benchmarks to evaluate the effectiveness of a number of regulatory policy measures. We then illustrate the functioning of one particular asset-pricing model—the seminal framework by Brock and Hommes (J Econ Dyn Control 22:1235–1274, 1998)—and its possible stabilization via a central authority that seeks to counter the destabilizing trading behavior of speculators. Our paper underlines that tools from the field of nonlinear dynamical systems may foster our understanding of the functioning of asset markets, thereby enabling policymakers to design better trading environments in the future.

Abstract

We first present a brief review of nonlinear asset-pricing models and contributions in which such models have been used as benchmarks to evaluate the effectiveness of a number of regulatory policy measures. We then illustrate the functioning of one particular asset-pricing model—the seminal framework by Brock and Hommes (J Econ Dyn Control 22:1235–1274, 1998)—and its possible stabilization via a central authority that seeks to counter the destabilizing trading behavior of speculators. Our paper underlines that tools from the field of nonlinear dynamical systems may foster our understanding of the functioning of asset markets, thereby enabling policymakers to design better trading environments in the future.
