Investing and market efficiency

This video seeks to address, in under four minutes and in a light-hearted manner, an important and profound idea in finance: the theoretical notion of market efficiency and its practical implications. We  believe that this question is of interest not only to business school students but also to a wide investing public, and have therefore strived to make it appealing and accessible to both target audiences.
