Boombustology: Spotting Financial Bubbles Before They Burst

Synopsis

THE WORLD IS in the midst of an accelerating sequence of booms and busts, and despite these developments, no organized multidisciplinary framework exists for thinking about them.

With the increased complexity and volatility surrounding financial bubbles, we need a more effective way to spot, and understand, these events. Based on his popular seminar at Yale University, Boombustology presents Vikram Mansharamani’s multi-lens framework fore valuating the extremely elaborate social phenomenon of financial market booms and busts.

Unlike other finance books—which discuss making day-to-day investment decisions or the optimal strategy for a particular market—Boombustology will help you identify the “needle-moving” extremes that have the potential to render many traditional investment approaches useless.
