Formatted abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to examine whether bubbles exist in the Australian equities market, what their causes are and how they impact upon the real economy. Econometric evidence concludes that bubbles existed in the Australian equities market between December 1982 and December 1996. Econometric support is found for the rational bubble explanation although survey evidence expands this view to include a role for all of the proposed bubble causes. I recommend (providing costs do not exceed benefits) that exchange listed companies be required to publish periodic estimates of the fundamental value of their shares.
