Adverse selection means that "a market process in which undesired results occur when buyers and sellers have asymmetric information (access to different information); the "bad" products or services are more likely to be selected." (Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adverse_selection)
I was wondering what the relationship between the name, "adverse selection", and its meaning is. That is, why is it called "adverse selection"?
