About the Book - 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.
