However, most Austrians stop short of following Chicago School economists' advocacy of the "efficient-markets hypothesis" (EMH). In its most extreme form, the EMH becomes a caricature of itself in which asset bubbles are not just unlikely but logically impossible.

Our understanding of the rationality of market prices for securities is pervasively important in business law. Prior to the U.S. housing bubble and the earlier dot com bubble, the Efficient Capital Market Hypothesis was itself the subject of a ideological bubble, where its refraction from theory to policy through the prism of politics inflated its claims far beyond what the original academic theory could support. With the bursting of this ideological bubble, however, we face an important task: guiding the concept back to its original scope without sacrificing its narrower but still important policy implications. The risk is that the swing from pre-crisis overstatement of the policy implications of the ECMH to the post-crisis rejection of its excesses will overshoot the point at which the pendulum should come to rest–that is, where the policy agenda follows from appropriately "sized" ECMH.

A "good story" of this sort has surfaced during the current financial crisis. A chapter of the story appeared in a recent New York Times article, "Poking Holes in a Theory on Markets." The theory in question is the efficient market hypothesis (EMH), which the article suggested is so hazardous that it "is more or less responsible for the financial crisis." This quote tells you most of what you need to know:

Ah, but Sumner has an answer: There was no housing bubble, at least if that term is to have any operational meaning. The fact that people like Mark Thornton quite clearly called it, back in 2004, means nothing. In fact, with so many economists running around, you would have expected a bunch of them to "call" every downward fall in asset prices.

The first reaction an Austrian economist might have is to ask, "Well if Sumner thinks there can't be a bubble right now in US government bonds, how does he explain the housing bubble? What happened to 'efficient markets' back then?"

In its simplest form, the debate between traditional and behavioral finance comes down to the difference between : if you believe the efficient market hypothesis, don’t try to beat the market by picking individual stocks, just invest in index funds. If you don’t believe it, try to anticipate the kinds of mistakes other investors are likely to make and take advantage of them (a strategy closely associated with the behavioral economist Richard Thaler, who was considered a likely candidate for the Nobel this year).
