One cause of instability in the covariance could for example be sudden ‘shocks’ in terms of specific good or bad news for a given company. After such a shock, we postulate that the covariance between the stock and the index changes, whereas the stock’s variance remains the same, but with a change in relative performance. The pricing formula that we obtain is reminiscent of the socalled capital allocation line in finance. This expresses the return of a portfolio that is composed of a certain percentage of the market portfolio, but with the remainder invested in a risk-free asset.

Neoclassical economics asserts two things. First, in a free market, competition establishes a price equilibrium that is perfectly efficient: demand equals supply and no resources are squandered. Second, in equilibrium no one can be made better off without making someone else worse off. The conclusions are a snug fit with rightwing convictions. So it is tempting to infer that the dominance of neoclassical theory has political origins. But while it has justified many rightwing policies, the truth goes deeper.

Another frequent motive is competition, where individuals, rather than trying to maximize their own gain, attempt to maximize the difference between their own outcome and the outcome of a partner. In opposition to this is an equalitarian orientation, where individuals try to keep their own outcomes and the outcomes of the partner even. Value orientation depends on personality and other individual characteristics of the decision-maker and the relation between the decision-maker and the partner, but also the situation, cultural considerations, and the nature of the decision.
