Abstract: Having roots in intentional behaviours, adverse selection as part of information asymmetry is a widely - discussed concept, closely related to many sides of economics and generating the most various problems in practice. As the specific literature says, the adverse selection leads, or at least in theory should lead to market failure when no external force comes to balance its effects. Since this failure never occurs in fact, it is questionable whether the adverse selection is the only factor that influences an uniformed consumer decision, or other factors come to counterbalance the factors described by Akerloff. This paper intends to advocate the idea that as much as adverse selection, there are subjective factors having impact on the decision made on the Romanian Education Market.
