Economic Bubbles - How Market Fads Come and Suddenly Go

certification logo12944       

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Economic bubbles, including asset bubbles and other various phenomena that can be labeled as fads, represent symptoms of occurrences of irrational exuberance. These have traditionally been understood as anomalies with little or no explanations. Hence the study of the phenomenon is relatively recent, and hence often misunderstood if not discarded as one-off anomalies.

Contrarily to what a lot of economic theory tells, bubbles have come up in recent history more often than we care to believe or to remember. Their effect is to destroy reputations and fortunes, but also to offer exceptional profit opportunities to who can ride the wave. The hypothesis behind this course is that bubbles, as the result of central bankers’ misguided policies or of deliberate government policy, can, to a degree, be predicted and used.

In this webinar join expert speaker Fred Vacelet, where he will review a few examples from recent and less recent history, to draw useful lessons from earlier disasters, and analyze their commonalities, causes, and mechanisms.

Session Highlights: 

  • Bubbles exist – from South Seas and subprime, to the next one

  • Mechanics of bubbles: anomaly, inflate, fashion, burst out

  • Trading and investment strategies for bubbly times: making money before and during Armageddon

  • The implication for Monetary policy: when can bubbles be controlled

  • Regulatory, and International Policies: present and potential policies that can keep bubbling under control
