Free markets, which operate based on the price system and profit maximization motive, successfully allocate many goods and services. However, there are instances and circumstances where markets are not able to allocate resources as optimally as we might hope. 

​For instance, what happens in the case of asymmetric information, when one party involved in the transaction, either the buyer or seller, knows more about the market transaction than the other party? We see the implications of this in situations where product prices might not actually reflect their true quality, given that the seller might be withholding information or presenting false information to the buyer, commonly known as the "Lemons Problem" in Economics.

Find out more about the correlation between asymmetric information and market failure in our Global Bachelor in Business Administration (Global BBA) Masterclass delivered by Professor Nona Pepito.
