A multi-disciplinary framework through which to spot financialbubbles before they burst.

Based on a popular undergraduate seminar, entitled FinancialBooms & Busts, taught by the author at Yale University,Boombustology presents a multi-disciplinary framework foridentifying unsustainable booms and forthcoming busts.

The magnitude of our recent financial crisis mandates a firmunderstanding of this phenomenon before the next crisis occurs.Boombustology provides an in-depth look at several majorbooms and busts and offers a solid framework for thinking aboutfuture occurrences.

  • Examines why booms and busts are not random and can thereforebe identified
  • Focuses upon various theoretical and disciplinary lenses usefulin the study of booms and busts
  • Contains a framework for thinking about and identifyingforthcoming financial bubbles including several tell-taleindicators of a forthcoming bust.
  • Illustrates the framework in action by evaluating China as apotential bubble in the making. 

If you want to make better decisions in today’s turbulentinvestment environment, understanding the dynamics of booms andbusts is the best place the start.  Boombustology canhelp you achieve this elusive goal.
