Summary:
This thesis reviews the majot' literature associated with the Capital Asset Pricing Model with emphasis on related controversial issues. The model's underlying theories, developed by Harry Markowitz and James Tobin, are presented first. This is followed by themathematicalderivation, developed by William Sharpe. Special attention is given to the controversial assumptions imposea by Markowitz and Tobin, which emerge in the CAPM. Major tests of the CAPM are reviewed next: and the empirical problems associated with test design are highlighted. It is shown that variations in test design produce controversial test results. The specific tests reviewed here fail to provide strong support for the nodel; nevertheless it becomes evident that such tests fostered a vast outpouring of new and extended models. The CAPM remains a breakthrough in financial and economic literature which deserves to be explored even more intensely in the future.
