Abstract

In his prologue to the theory of speculation, Samuelson (1966a, p. 947 and passim) deals exclusively with the case of "foreseen changes in future supply and demand" in outlining a theory of intertemporal competitive price-quantity equilibria in markets that are subject to speculation. The analysis was considered to be a preliminary step to the more complicated cases involving uncertainty. Modern extensions of the theory (Mandelbrot, 1971; Samuelson, 1972; Schimmler, 1973) to include uncertainty have been accompanied by such vestiges of this original "perfect knowledge" model (e.g., common, well-defined expectations) as demanded, perhaps by the limitations of mathematical machinery and imagination for restructuring the theory.
