Financial markets in the conditionsof bounded rationality

Languages of publication



In this paper an attempt was made to clarify the reasons of price movements on financial markets in the conditions of decision-makers bounded rationality. The emphasis of rationality of individuals, which is limited by information they have and the cognitive limitations of their minds, allowed to discuss the hypothesis of efficient markets and an assumption of their rational expectations. As a results of these considerations a model of financial markets was formulated in which an investor could choose different investment strategies and decide to change originally chosen ones as a consequence of their bounded rationality.
