Market efficiency is typically conducted as a test of the random walk hypothesis. The strong form of market efficiency essentially proclaims that it is impossible to consistently outperform the market, particularly in the short term, because it is impossible to predict stock prices. 0000064080 00000 n 0000077551 00000 n There is a comprehensive review by Fama (1970) on the theory and evidence on market efficiency, which proceeds from theory to empirical work. 0000070846 00000 n 0000043649 00000 n 2 Market Structures and the 21st Century Energy Plan The current energy plan debate has focused almost exclusively on policy changes that are required in order to develop new base load power plants. To test market efficiency, it is commonly believed (see, for example, Campbell, Lo and MacKinlay [5] and Fama [24]) that one must first specify an equilibrium model, indeed Fama [23], p. 1575 states: “Thus, market efficiency per se is not testable. 0000092768 00000 n 0000051301 00000 n 0000048408 00000 n 0000071443 00000 n 0000088795 00000 n 0000085231 00000 n 0000094865 00000 n 0000096179 00000 n 0000075589 00000 n 0000088995 00000 n 0000063819 00000 n 0000046518 00000 n ! 0000083497 00000 n In 2016 alone, public firms in the United States exchanged $600 billion worth of assets, which accounted for 32% of their total investments. 0000099335 00000 n 0000075187 00000 n 0000097014 00000 n 0000048981 00000 n 0000031845 00000 n 0000074807 00000 n 0000056800 00000 n Market-based economies have come to be the dominant system for the production and distribution of goods and services.
