Abstract

This project examines the expectation of inflation and its interaction with various financial markets. An overview of behavioral finance was given which illustrates how people form expectations and make decisions. Then the case of inflation expectation was analyzed in an attempt to measure it with an econometric model. How investors perform with inflation expectation measures was investigated. Finally, the impact of technology on market efficiency was analyzed and implications of the findings were offered.
