From the Brains of Profs

If you’re like me, you like to test the conclusions of “research” provided by industry and the popular press with the observations of traditional academics. One great source is Dimensional Fund Advisors’ hosted Fama/French Forum, billed as “Observations, opinions, research and links from financial economists Eugene Fama and Kenneth French”. It’s at http://www.dimensional.com/famafrench/. The names are probably familiar to you as Professor Fama introduced Bachelier’s concept of “efficient markets” to the world of modern finance and Professors Fama and French developed what has become know as the three-factor model (Beta, size and value).
