A multi-disciplinary framework through which to spot financial bubbles before they burst. Based on a popular undergraduate seminar, entitled Financial Booms & Busts, taught by the author at Yale University, Boombustology presents a multi-disciplinary framework for identifying unsustainable booms and forthcoming busts. The magnitude of our recent financial crisis mandates a firm understanding of this phenomenon before the next crisis occurs. Boombustology provides an in-depth look at several major booms and busts and offers a solid framework for thinking about future occurrences. * Examines why booms and busts are not random and can therefore be identified * Focuses upon various theoretical and disciplinary lenses useful in the study of booms and busts * Contains a framework for thinking about and identifying forthcoming financial bubbles including several tell-tale indicators of a forthcoming bust. * Illustrates the framework in action by evaluating China as a potential bubble in the making. If you want to make better decisions in today s turbulent investment environment, understanding the dynamics of booms and busts is the best place the start.
Boombustology can help you achieve this elusive goal. Vikram Mansharamani is a Lecturer at Yale University and a global equity investor.
