“Outstanding positions on the derivatives markets are $415,000 billion, roughly seven times world GDP – and up 12 percent over the last six months. They grew 24 percent in the preceding six months”.

If shares sell at multiples of earnings, would it be plausible to say that Risk is selling at 7 times Production?
