There is a recurring line of argument in the literature to the effect that Bohms theory fails to solve the measurement problem. I show that this argument fails in all its variants. Hence Bohms theory, whatever its drawbacks, at least succeeds in solving the measurement problem. I briefly discuss a similar argument that has been raised against the GRW theory.
