Overview

A featured, virtual Value Investing Group meeting

Robert Shiller of Yale University, an economist, author, and Nobel Laureate discusses his book Narrative Economics. Shiller proposes a novel idea —the narratives that people believe and use to understand the world affect their economic behavior and in turn, affect the macroeconomy. Shiller argues that taking these psychological effects into account is a new frontier of economic research and he gives a number of examples of how we might think about these phenomena.

This event is co-sponsored by the Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis, the CFA Society of New York, the Museum of American Finance, and Fixed Income Analyst Society Inc
