A New Paradigm of Financial Market Behaviour

Funding: 2004: $80,000
2005: $90,000
2006: $90,000

Project Member(s): He, X.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2004

Summary: The project contributes to the development of a newly emerging paradigm for describing financial market behaviour. It will model financial markets as adaptively evolving systems that are the outcome of the interaction of boundedly rational economic agents with heterogeneous beliefs. The new paradigm will seek to explain aspects of financial market behaviour not well explained by the standard finance paradigm. The project outcomes will be of benefit to financial market researchers and regulators by providing a better framework for understanding and managing financial market volatility.
