Summary/Abstract: The efficient market theory examines which groups of information are included in the market price. It also provides a hypothesis of efficient market where prices fully reflect all available information. However, the theory does not describe the behaviour of economic agents which leads to the state where the market is efficient. Robert Lucas, with his model based on rational expectations, offers a possible solution.
