What can we expect from stock markets over the next decades?
An Analysis about the US Stock Market which should also applicable to other Markets.

The second half of the 20th century saw a tremendous increase in the value of stocks all over the world and in particular the US. This is known as the equity premium puzzle in the literature. Despite a couple of financial crisis in the 21st century stock markets all over the world are still performing well. One questions on everyone’s mind is what can we expect from the stock market over the next few decades (the long run)? This is an important question for pension funds, policy makers as well as retail and institutional investors. This Masterclass looks at a simple model to determine the fair value of stock markets and draws some conclusion about what we can expect long term returns on stock market to be. Can we expect similar high returns over the next 30 years than what we have seen since the 1980s?
