Thesis title: Essays on Perfect Foresight in Asset Pricing
My thesis presents three essays which build on theoretical and experimental applications of the perfect foresight approach to modelling equilibrium. The first essay contrasts different strains of information aggregation research and contains a detailed description of the pilot studies conducted to develop the experimental study presented in the second essay. The second essay also introduces two new stability concepts to the analysis of rational expectations equilibrium models. The third essay examines the use of perfect foresight when modelling disagreement in financial markets.
