Mark Twain Effect

In finance, the Mark Twain effect is a phenomenon which refers to the increased efficiency of financial markets as a result of the work of American humorist and author Mark Twain.

Twain’s writing was often lampooned by financiers and bankers who saw him as a satirical blow against authority, and this led to an increased reliance on financial markets as a means of pricing risk and making investment decisions.
