Abstract. The economic theory behind the standard formulae of applied asset pricing will be discussed. A dynamic control problem arises from the agent's optimization problem and the solutions to that problem lead to various results in finance. Understanding the economics behind the finance is important for developing new pricing models. The talk might be subtitled "Economics is to finance as physics is to engineering."
