World-renowned economist Robert Shiller, co-creator of the Case-Shiller housing index, and perhaps the only economist to warn of both the dot.com bubble and the housing bubble will talk about the role finance plays in creating the good society at the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) on November 28, 2012 at Author Series: Finance and the Good Society.
Robert J. Shiller is the Arthur M. Okun Professor of Economics, Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, at Yale University. He has written about financial markets, behavioral economics, macroeconomics, real estate, statistical methods; and public attitudes, opinions, and moral judgments regarding markets. His book Irrational Exuberance (Princeton University Press, 2000 & 2005 in 15 foreign language editions, Broadway Books 2001) is an analysis and explication of the stock market boom since 1982. It won the Commonfund Prize, 2000, and was a New York Times nonfiction bestseller.
Author Series: Finance and the Good Society will be held November 28, 2012 from 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. at NYSSA Conference Center, 1540 Broadway, Suite 1010, New York, NY 10036.
