I am writing a 15-20 page term paper over break for my senior seminar economics
class. I decided I am going to write on the topic of behavioral finance.
Including excerpts from
Manias, Panics Crashes- Kindleberger
Fooled by Randomness- Nassim Taleb
When Genius Fail
-I will look at sentiment indicators
-Collapse of the wise men running LTCM
-Buffet comparison between superstar investors and finalists in a national coin
-Tobin Q- Markets overvalued/undervalued
-John Maynard Keynes beauty contest
-sociological and psychological factors
And my thesis is going to prove that markets act irrational and no mathematical
formula will time business cycles they just happen.
Please give me suggestions to further my hypothesis. Thank you all!
