Jutta A. Dönges applies the recent theory of global games to a model of intermarket competition and shows the existence of a unique equilibrium. The author investigates whether and under which circumstances alternative trading systems can co-exist with established securities markets or even replace them.
Dr. Jutta A. Dönges promovierte am Fachbereich Wirtschaftswissenschaften der Universität Frankfurt am Main. Sie ist seit mehreren Jahren in der Investment Banking Division einer amerikanischen Investment Bank tätig.
