Abstract

Focused on the « rational expectations hypothesis», which has served as the foundation of modeling and empirical research in financial microeconomics under the heading of « efficient market hypothesis» (EMH), this paper is dedicated firstly to provide, through a careful analysis of some popular statements among finance practitioners, precise indications of what EMH does and does not consist of. The se~cond part develops a critical analysis of the « anomalies» revealed by systematic testing of the EMH, and to the implications thereof for portfolio management.
