Prior to viewing the video below, I suggest you read these three posts (in this order):

The kinda-eventually-sorta-mostly-almost Efficient Market Theory [1] (November 20th, 2004)

• Random Walk and Outperforming Fund Managers [2] (July 19th, 2006)

• How Shiller helped Fama win the Nobel [3] (October 26th, 2013)

In 2008, Eugene Fama made a video for the American Finance Association on the history of the efficient markets hypothesis.
