    There is no other proposition in economics which has more solid empirical evidence supporting it than the Efficient Markets Hypothesis.

    (Jensen, 1978)

    I'd be a bum on the streets with a tin cup if the markets were efficient.

    (Warren Buffett, attrib.)

    This unit discusses a contentious issue in economics: why particular groups, such as women or ethnic minorities, are disadvantaged in the labour market. It compares different theoretical and empirical explanations for why such systematic labour market disadvantage is experienced by some groups in society.

    As an approach to understanding economic life, the assumption of formal rationality has been very successful. For example, there is great deal of evidence that, on average, prices in financial markets behave as if investors were formally rational. However, there is also a great deal of evidence that individuals do not behave in this way (e.g. de Bondt, 1998). Even within the field of financial economics, there is increasing interest in developing theories of market behaviour which take better" }, { "xpert_id": "201785", "title": "3.1 Introduction", "link": "http://openlearn.open.ac.uk/mod/oucontent/view.php?id=397325§ion=3.1", "description": "

    Much of economics and finance theory rests on the notion of people as formally rational decision makers. First, people are understood to have ordered preferences. That is, if someone prefers A to B and prefers B to C then they should prefer A to C. Second, decision makers are assumed to engage in a formally rational decision-making process on the basis of those preferences.

    In this subsection we want to look at one attempt to link some of the positive and negative aspects of the new economy. Danny Quah is an economist at the London School of Economics who has studied the new economy over a number of years. He refers to the new economy as the weightless or dematerialised economy and he examines its economic implications and also why it has a tendency to lead to increasing economy inequality.

    According to the ‘weightless economy' argument, th" }, { "xpert_id": "204105", "title": "Next steps", "link": "http://openlearn.open.ac.uk/mod/oucontent/view.php?id=397269§ion=7", "description": "Britain was the first country to industrialise, and it acquired the largest empire ever during this same period.
