Bernard Fraigneau, Money and the Management of Uncertainties
Money has always been measuring itself to time. With the expansion of the settlement markets, the time in the future is becoming convertible into cash. - The end of certainties. References to quantic relativity. An environment of entropy and irreversibility. For a control on the likely and a management of the unforseable. - The global casino of time markets. The technical support of public debts. Short description of financial innovation (futures). - Neither angelism, nor systematic denigration. A new added value in the direction of human progress.

Key Words : money, uncertainty, time market, future
