Irrational exuberance by Robert J Shiller( Book )
103 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,600 libraries worldwide
"Robert J. Shiller offers an unconventional interpretation of recent U.S. stock market highs and shows that Alan Greenspan's term "irrational exuberance" is a good description of the mood behind the market. He warns that poorer performance may be in the offing and tells us how we - as a society and individually - can respond." "Irrational Exuberance is for individual investors as well as investment professionals, pension-plan sponsors, and endowment managers everywhere. It will be studied by policy makers and anyone from Wall Street to Main Street who doesn't want to be caught sitting on the speculative bubble if (or when) it bursts."--Jacket
Animal spirits : how human psychology drives the economy, and why it matters for global capitalism by George A Akerlof( Book )
38 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,777 libraries worldwide
The global financial crisis has made it painfully clear that powerful psychological forces are imperiling the wealth of nations today. From blind faith in ever-rising housing prices to plummeting confidence in capital markets, 'animal spirits' are driving financial events worldwide. In this book, acclaimed economists George Akerlof and Robert Shiller challenge the economic wisdom that got us into this mess, and put forward a bold new vision that will transform economics and restore prosperity. Akerlof and Shiller reassert the necessity of an active government role in economic policymaking by recovering the idea of animal spirits, a term John Maynard Keynes used to describe the gloom and despondence that led to the Great Depression and the changing psychology that accompanied recovery. Like Keynes, Akerlof and Shiller know that managing these animal spirits requires the steady hand of government - simply allowing markets to work won't do it. In rebuilding the case for a more robust, behaviorally informed Keynesianism, they detail the most pervasive effects of animal spirits in contemporary economic life - such as confidence, fear, bad faith, corruption, a concern for fairness, and the stories we tell ourselves about our economic fortunes - and show how Reaganomics, Thatcherism, and the rational expectations revolution failed to account for them. "Animal Spirits" offers a road map for reversing the financial misfortunes besetting us today. Read it and learn how leaders can channel animal spirits - the powerful forces of human psychology that are afoot in the world economy today
Finance and the good society by Robert J Shiller( Book )
40 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,297 libraries worldwide
The reputation of the financial industry could hardly be worse than it is today in the painful aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. "New York Times" best-selling economist Robert Shiller is no apologist for the sins of finance - he is probably the only person to have predicted both the stock market bubble of 2000 and the real estate bubble that led up to the subprime mortgage meltdown. But in this important and timely book, Shiller argues that, rather than condemning finance, we need to reclaim it for the common good. He makes a powerful case for recognizing that finance, far from being a parasite on society, is one of the most powerful tools we have for solving our common problems and increasing the general well-being. We need more financial innovation - not less - and finance should play a larger role in helping society achieve its goals. Challenging the public and its leaders to rethink finance and its role in society, Shiller argues that finance should be defined not merely as the manipulation of money or the management of risk but as the stewardship of society's assets. He explains how people in financial careers - from CEO, investment manager, and banker to insurer, lawyer, and regulator - can and do manage, protect, and increase these assets. He describes how finance has historically contributed to the good of society through inventions such as insurance, mortgages, savings accounts, and pensions, and argues that we need to envision new ways to rechannel financial creativity to benefit society as a whole. Ultimately, Shiller shows how society can once again harness the power of finance for the greater good

The flaw : markets, money, mortgages, and the great American meltdown by David Sington( visu )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 474 libraries worldwide
Inspired by former U.S. Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan's acknowledgment that he'd found a flaw in his model of how the world worked, 'The Flaw' attempts to explain the underlying causes of the financial crisis in more depth than any documentary to date. The film tells the story of the credit bubble that caused the financial crash, and presents an original and compelling account of the toxic combination of forces that nearly destroyed the world economy

Les esprits animaux comment les forces psychologiques mènent la finance et l'économie by George A Akerlof( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in French and held by 120 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : "La vision (libérale) de marchés capables de s'autoréguler, avec des acteurs sérieux opérant des choix rationnels, a été mise à mal par la crise économique et financière. L'économie réelle est bizarre, incertaine, irrégulière, et ne doit pas faire abstraction de nos "esprits animaux". Les esprits animaux, ce sont les facteurs psychologiques qui influencent notre économie, sa part d'incohérence et d'instabilité naturelles - et souhaitables! Car si l'incertitude qu'elle génère, à certaines périodes, nous paralyse, elle se révèle, à d'autres, stimulante et féconde. On doit la théorie des esprits animaux à Keynes. Akerlof et Schiller, deux des économistes les plus respectés aujourd'hui, présentent et expliquent comment ces forces irrationnelles et inconscientes font et défont nos économies. Comment adviennent les crises? Quel est le pouvoir réel des banques centrales? Qu'est-ce qui explique l'instabilité récurrente des marchés financiers? D'où vient le caractère cyclique du marché immobilier? Le chômage est-il inéluctable? ... Revisitant les grands épisodes de l'histoire économique, cet ouvrage examine les réponses possibles à la crise et offre une autre vision de l'économie - plus réelle, et plus humaine."
Moral hazard in home equity conversion by Robert J Shiller( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 78 libraries worldwide
Home equity conversion as presently constituted or proposed usually does not deal well with the potential problem of moral hazard. Once home-owners know that the risk of poor market performance of their homes is borne by investors, they have an incentive to neglect to take steps to maintain the homes' values. They may thus create serious future losses for the investors. A calibrated model for assessing this moral hazard risk is presented that is suitable for a number of home equity conversion forms: 1) reverse mortgages, 2) home equity insurance, 3) shared appreciation mortgages, 4) housing partnerships, 5) shared equity mortgages and 6) sale of remainder interest. Modifications of these forms involving real estate price indices are proposed that might deal better with the problem of moral hazard
A scorecard for indexed government debt by John Y Campbell( Book )
15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
Abstract: Within the last five years, Canada, Sweden and New Zealand have joined the ranks of the United Kingdom and other countries in issuing government bonds that are indexed to inflation. Some observers of the experience in these countries have argued that the United States should follow suit. This paper provides an overview of the issues surrounding debt indexation, and it tries to answer three empirical questions about indexed debt. First, how different would the returns on indexed bonds be from the returns on existing US debt instruments? Second, how would indexed bonds affect the government's average financing costs? Third, how might the Federal Reserve be able to use the information contained in the prices of indexed bonds to help formulate monetary policy? The paper concludes with a more speculative discussion of the possible consequences of increased use of indexed debt contracts by the private sector
Indexed units of account : theory and assessment of historical experience by Robert J Shiller( Book )
14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
An indexed unit of account is a money analogue, used to express prices; the unit's purchasing power is defined by an index. Indexed units of account are not true money in that they are not used as a medium of exchange. The first successful indexed unit of account Unidad de Fomento (UF) has been used in Chile since 1967, and has been copied in Colombia Ecuador, Mexico, and Uruguay. The reasons for creating such units are discussed from the standpoint of monetary theory. The experience with such units in Chile is discussed. It is argued that important practical problems in implementing indexation were solved by creating such" indexed units of account. The existing indexed units of accounts may not be ideal for all purposes, however, and alternative definitions of the units, relating the units to measures of income, may also be advantageous. The indexed units of account might someday be monetized, i.e., institutions such as debit cards may be devised to allow the units to be used for all transactions, so that the role of conventional money might be reduced to clearing-house functions only
Human behavior and the efficiency of the financial system by Robert J Shiller( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
Recent literature in empirical finance is surveyed in its relation to underlying behavioral principles, principles which come primarily from psychology, sociology and anthropology. The behavioral principles discussed are: prospect theory, regret and cognitive dissonance mental compartments, overconfidence, over- and underreaction, representativeness heuristic disjunction effect, gambling behavior and speculation, perceived irrelevance of history thinking, quasi-magical thinking, attention anomalies, the availability heuristic contagion, and global culture
Designing indexed units of account by Robert J Shiller( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
An indexed unit of account is a unit of measurement defined using an index such as a consumer price index so that prices defined in terms of these units will automatically adjust to changing economic conditions. Evidence on sticky prices and money illusion, and evidence from countries (notably Chile) that have created indexed units of account, suggests that creating such units is an important policy option for governments in countries with unstable price levels. A model is given that shows the dynamics of money prices when prices are expressed in the units. Results from the model suggest some design elements for an indexed unit of account: institutions to promote broad use of the unit for pricing, and a formal policy to increase the frequency of index computation when the price level becomes more volatile
Labor income indices designed for use in contracts promoting income risk management by Robert J Shiller( Book )
15 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Labor income indices are created for groupings of individuals, using data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. People are grouped by a clustering algorithm based on an estimated transition matrix between jobs, by education level, and by skill category. The groupings are defined so that relatively few people move between them. For each of the groupings, we generate a labor income index using a hedonic repeated-measures regression methodology. Similarities between pairs of indices and between indices and individual labor incomes are described. It is argued that indices like those presented here might someday be used in settlement formulae in contracts promoting income risk management
World income components : measuring and exploiting international risk sharing opportunities by Robert J Shiller( Book )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
We provide methods of decomposing the variance of world national incomes into components in such a way as to indicate the most important risk-sharing opportunities, and, therefore, the most important missing international risk markets to establish. One method uses a total variance reduction criterion, and identifies risk-sharing opportunities in terms of eigenvectors of a variance matrix of residuals produced when country incomes are regressed on world income. Another method uses a mean-variance utility-maximizing criterion and identifies risk-sharing opportunities in terms of eigenvectors of a variance matrix of deviations of country incomes from their respective contract-year shares of world income. The two methods are applied using Summers-Heston (1991) data on national incomes for large countries 1950-1990, each using two different methods of estimating variances. While these data are not sufficient to provide accurate estimates of the requisite variance matrices of (transformed) national incomes, the results are suggestive of important new markets that could actually be created, and show that there may be large welfare gains to creating some of these markets
Comparing wealth effects : the stock market versus the housing market by Karl E Case( Book )
18 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
We examine the link between increases in housing wealth, financial wealth, and consumer spending. We rely upon a panel of 14 countries observed annually for various periods during the past 25 years and a panel of U.S. states observed quarterly during the 1980s and 1990s. We impute the aggregate value of owner-occupied housing, the value of financial assets, and measures of aggregate consumption for each of the geographic units over time. We estimate regressions relating consumption to income and wealth measures, finding a statistically significant and rather large effect of housing wealth upon household consumption
