A Brief History of the Efficient Markets Hypothesis

Back in 2008, Gene Fama made a nice video for the American Finance Association on the history of the efficient markets hypothesis. The video is finally out on the new AFA youtube channel here. You may have to drag the cursor back to see the introduction, on which I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself.

  1. Fama says no bubbles, markets work. I believe him, otherwise why have markets. Okay, last year unit labor costs fell 1.3 percent, says the BLS. The PCE deflator now trending down, under 1 percent. Actually, inflation and interest rates have been trending down for 30 years...
    Why the hysteria at the Fed over bubbles and inflation?


Comments are welcome. Keep it short, polite, and on topic.

Thanks to a few abusers I am now moderating comments. I welcome thoughtful disagreement. I will block comments with insulting or abusive language. I'm also blocking totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. I am much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
