- Half of all Americans have money in the stock market, yet economists canât agree on whether investors and markets are rational and efficient, as modern financial theory assumes, or irrational and inefficient, as behavioral economists believeâand as financial bubbles, crashes, and crises suggest. This is one of the biggest debates in economics, and the value or futility of investment management and financial regulation hang on the outcome. In this course, MIT finance professor Andrew W. Lo cuts through this debate with a new frameworkâthe Adaptive Markets Hypothesisâin which rationality and irrationality coexist. Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, this course shows that the theory of market efficiency isnât wrong, but merely incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. This new paradigm explains how evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thoughtâa fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation. A fascinating intellectual journey filled with compelling stories, the course begins with the origins of market efficiency and its failures, turns to the foundations of investor behavior, and concludes with some practical implicationsâincluding how hedge funds have become the GalÃ¡pagos Islands of finance, what really happened in the 2008 meltdown, and how we might avoid future crises. This course provides ambitious new approaches to address some of the biggest challenges facing us today such as cancer, climate change, the energy crisis, and how to navigate through the choppy waters of global financial markets in a post-COVID-19 world.
