Convexity is an outcome. Convexity when plotted looks like it goes
through the roof. Hyper-inflation is price convexity. Looking at
extreme outcomes isn't as interesting as understanding the drivers that
create them. please note, I am not talking about typical bond convexity, but rather system behavior outcome as convex.
complex systems have multiple inputs, let's call them X, Y and Z. In
some systems these components are independent and additive. For example
if I make lemonade for a living, my Lemons, Sugar and Cups are mostly
independent cost inputs. Inflation may make them all correlate, but by
and large they are independent and slowly rising as a function of
inflation X+Y+Z = cost of lemonade.
