A delight of this topic is that it is possible to go on and on and on. But closure is needed somewhere, and it is with this chapter. The farewell message is to stress that the powerful tools derived in this book can be used elsewhere: This concluding chapter suggests how and where. At this stage, for instance, the reader probably can develop at least a partial explanation for other topics encountered on the market. It may take some imagination to find a surrogate for inflation, or pollution, or …, but being able to do so is what offers a personal advantage.
