Özet: In this talk, I discuss the idea that financial markets can serve as “mirrors" of the real economy - a claim that follows from a certain understanding of the "Efficient Market Hypothesis" and that has been used to justify the central place of finance in capitalist economists. I discuss both internal obstacles to epistemic efficiency, as they are discussed by behavioral economists and economic sociologists, and external factors of distortions that undermine the claim that financial markets give us an unbiased picture of how "the economy" is doing.
