Critics regarding the Black and Scholes model aren't new. The model was about of being labelled 'historic'. It is new now that the model has become an auto-nomous, unreflected item in international accounting standards and law allowing "creative" accounting. There is no economial relation between the future value of an underlying and it's current volatility. Predictions - pricing of derivatives means predicting - remain uncertain. Findings are based on empirical, experimental techniques using fictituous derivatives, others.
