The very category of the CDO is, he argues, ‘degenerative fantasy’ (BSEP 449): Anyone who believes that [these] derivatives can durably trade and prosper in a market that endures by its own necessity has no other ground for such a belief than sheer dogmatic faith. It suffices that he loses the faith for his market to collapse and disappear.
However, this is not yet trading. Trading the derivative is precisely what happens next. (BSEP 5) The ‘myth of ex-ante valuation’,25 registered in the third assumption of the orthodox view, is refuted each time a derivative is priced. 27 It is at this point that the Kantian character of Ayache’s position once more asserts itself, since the claim is not just that the orthodox view, and the probabilistic calculus that is its core, is inaccurate, but rather that it does play a role in the trading of derivatives, albeit one circumscribed by its inapplicability to the act of trading as such.
17 On the other hand, the notion of statistically normal distribution brings with it its own set of presuppositions that can be questioned on the same basis, even though Meillassoux only hints at such a line of argument. Leaving aside the quite legitimate socio-political and historical concerns about the normality ascribed to normal distribution, we can observe that, in order to posit such a norm, the distribution of all states must also be assumed to be both totalized and thinkable. In turn, the presumed operational power of normal distribution rests on a metaphysical position that weds the totalizability of chance and the eradication of contingency in the strong sense.
