In this article, the author reflects on the Marc Rogalski's, a mathematician, theory of mathematical finance. He notes that a 10% rate of return is considered above the riskless rate and a high rate of return corresponds with a higher risk. He states that the world economy's expansion is accompanied by wealth inequalities and finance industries. He mentions that Rogalski's statement that financial mathematics depends in increasing speculative profits and making them more secure is wrong.
