Bainbridge on the ECMH and Behavioral Economics
By Mike Rappaport

Great column by Stephen Bainbridge on the efficient capital markets theory and behavioral economics. The bottom line -- which has been the one I have held since law school during the "decade of greed" -- capital markets in general work well and the possibilities of cognitive biases by regulators are a strong argument against regulating such markets.
