Sample text

How would prices ever differ in the "otherwise identical world", in which all investors receive "publicly available" information, which by definition is already costlessly available to them all in the "real" world? Tautologically, prices cannot differ between these worlds: with exactly zero cost of being informed, all investors in the real world become fully informed about "public" information, by construction. In reality, of course, not all investors can be expected to be costlessly and fully informed about any piece of information, however simple to understand; but this merely says that there is no exact proxy for the construct of public information.

Grossman and Stiglitz' argument thus points out once more the inadequacy of Fama's (1970) original definition, though in fairness to Fama it should be noted that his 1976 revision was by then free of these problems. Grossman-Stiglitz raises similar issues to those discussed in the previous subsection. An important value espoused by the "empirical school" is that market participants do not need to individually understand the working of a market for it to function well economically. Under this view, observed securities markets could reflect information sufficiently well for researchers to judge them "efficient," yet those same researchers could expect prices to not fully reveal information to all investors.

I am not aware of any of the important early researchers who thought that further formalization was necessary. It also served to stimulate a definitional debate that has continued for almost two decades. Thus, the modelling and even the concept of "efficiency" began to attract criticism, possibly fueled by: (i) the emergence of information economics as an important field, populated by researchers placing more emphasis upon logical coherence than did the "empiricists"; (ii) the logical scrutiny of the "efficiency" construct that arose naturally from researchers seeking explanations for the early empirical anomalies; and (iii) reactions to Fama's paper.
