Robert Shiller and Financial Innovation: Why We Need More of It Now?
Join the Harvard Business School Club of New York and HBS Real Estate Alumni Association as we host Robert Shiller for a book signing on October 4th and find out more about Finance and the Good Society
With the J.P. Morgan’s
trading loss and the Barclay’s LIBOR interest-rate fixing scandal still fresh
on many minds, there is more than a whisper about the role of finance and its
impact on society. In Finance and the
Good Society (Princeton University Press, March 2012), Robert
Shiller argues that we need more financial innovation for solving common
problems and the overall betterment of society. Shiller was among the first in America to
foresee the housing bubble in 2003. He persuasively makes the case about
finance’s role in society, one in which it protects assets.
Robert J. Shiller is the Arthur M. Okun Professor of Economics, Department of
Economics and Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, Yale University,
and Professor of Finance and Fellow at the International Center
for Finance, Yale School of Management. He received his B.A. from the University of Michigan in 1967 and his Ph.D. in
economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1972. He has
written on financial markets, financial innovation, behavioral economics,
macroeconomics, real estate, statistical methods, and on public attitudes,
opinions, and moral judgments regarding markets.
Dr. Shiller is ranked among
the 100 most influential economists in the world and Bloomberg has named him to
the 50 Most Influential People in Global Finance. Dr. Shiller will
discuss topics from his new book Finance
and the Good Society and sign copies.
