Inefficient Markets – Andrei Shleifer


Recommended Posts

[amazonsearch]Inefficient Markets[/amazonsearch]


The cracks of the efficient market hypothesis, from within the economics profession, from one of its top guys. A rigorous book to throw to brainwashed MBAs.


Heavy on math but balanced with real world evidence. Just the closed-end funds chapter is worth the, it must be said, very expensive price for such a short book.


– Noise Trading, a theory of dumb money and how it can survive.

– The Limits of Arbitrage, or how the lack of perfect instruments and risk aversion is a detriment to closing the noise.

– The Limits of Professional Arbitrage, and how redemptions make life even more difficult.

– Positive Feedback, how noise traders can extend a trend longer than you think.


And it doesn't even discuss financial crises.
