This paper presents a model for asset markets with a subjectively rational solution for the price of the traded assets. Consequently, traders cannot act objectively rational and an increase in the numbers of traders does not enlarge the information set necessary for determining the "true" price. An empirical test is suggested. It demonstrates the relevance of the argument.
