The book is written in a non-technical fashion for beginning graduate students and non-specialists.4/5(2). In "Rational Expectations and the Theory of Price Movements", published in , Muth put forward his hypothesis, in contrast to Simon, that "expectations, since they are informed predictions of future events, are essentially the same as the predictions of the relevant economic theory."Awards: Alexander Henderson Award ().
