Derman and Taleb's The Illusions of Dynamic Replication: A Comment
While as a matter of pure chance and mathematical manipulations, the Black- Scholes formula could have been accidentally obtained much earlier by making use of put-call parity, a simple thought experiment demonstrates the inconclusiveness of any such derivation as regards the validity of the resulting pricing equation. In particular, the use of a non-stochastic discount rate common to both the call and the put op- tions is inconsistent with modern equilibrium capital asset pricing theory. Additional observations are made.
