The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Quote of the week

How efficient, really, is the Efficient Market Hypothesis? Lance offers some illustrative dialogue:

Economist: That looks like a $20 bill lying on the ground over there.

Other Economist: It couldn’t be. If it were, somebody would have picked it up already.

And they call it a "dismal" science.

It would be lying on the ground if it were torn in half. Not sure how it affects broader monetary policy, though.
