    Description

    In this bold and potentially urgent volume, Robert J. Shiller, a respected expert on market volatility, offers an unconventional interpretation of recent U.S. stock market highs and shows that Alan Greenspan's term "irrational exuberance" is a good description of the mood behind the market. He warns that poorer performance may be in the offing and tells us how we - as a society and individually - can respond.

    Shiller credits an unprecedented confluence of events with driving stocks to uncharted heights. He analyzes the structural and psychological factors that explain why the Dow Jones Industrial Average tripled between 1994 and 1999, a level of growth not reflected in any other sector of the economy. In contrast to many analysts, Shiller stresses circumstances that alter investors' perceptions of the market. These include the entry of the Internet into American homes, the misimpression that the aging of the baby-boom generation builds long-term protection into the market, and herd behavior, such as day-trading. He also examines cultural factors, including sports-style media coverage of the Dow's ups and downs and "new era" thinking about the economy. He considers - and challenges - efforts to rationalize exuberance that are based on either efficient-markets theory, narrowly construed, or the claim that investors have only recently learned the true value of the market.

    Irrational Exuberance is a must-listen for individual investors as well as investment professionals, pension-plan sponsors, and endowment managers everywhere. It will be studied by policy makers and anyone from Wall Street to Main Street who doesn't want to be caught sitting on the speculative bubble if (or when) it bursts.

    Very academic, but thorough and informative

    This audiobook is not for the faint of heart!

    This is an academic overiew of behavioral finance. Not as thorough as a textbook, but it has the same flavor. With the acadmic perspective without the thoroughnes of an academic text, it reads like a litnay of hypothesis about the 'irrationality' of the stock market interspersed with anecdotal statistics and historical examples.

    The book has a very one-sided view of the central controversy in the economics of Finance, which is the rationlity of the financial markets. His strong endorsement of behavorial finance and emphatic rejection of Efficient Market Theory detract from the power of some of the hypothesis he puts forward.

    Because it is abridged, I cannot say if the book lost much in the abridgement. Being read by the author (a Yale economics professor), I would hope that this version keeps the essence of the unabridged text.

    If you can survive what seems, at times, an interminable academic lecture, this book does offer lots of facts and insights useful to understanding how the financial markets funtion.

    Annoying glitch 80% in

    Near the 5 hrs mark, the audible version gets choppy and scratchy. It was pretty annoying, so I downloaded the book again and I still had the same issue:/

    It also doesn’t help that Dr. Schiller speaks with barely any personality.

    A good introduction to Market behaviour

    I listened to the book twice, only to digest the material once again.
    It was very captivating to see how complex things are and how people
    try to explain in very simplistic terms. I wish I had listened to
    this book even earlier as it is a necessary book (in my opinion) to
    one's own understanding of investing and its rewards.

    A very timely book

    As I have been listening to Shiller’s book I’m blown away by its relevance to what’s going on today.
    When will we learn!

    The best book I have ever heard on investing

    Is Robert Shiller a modern day Nostradamus? Given how things have played out since he wrote this book in March 2000, it certainly seems like it.

    The writing and reading are excellent. He has a dry wit that is very enjoyable and a thorough academic style that digs in right to the heart of the issues.

    He elegantly dismantles the efficient market hypothesis.

    This is a must read book.

    Great content, ok but not great narration.

    This book is a must read/listen for all investors and/or economists. Robert Shiller describes in a very rational way the occational folly by the masses which creates investing bubbels in the economy.
    During certain sections the narration is a bit lackluster but overall a decent performance.

    Great insights

    Professor Shiller provides insights that are as applicable today as they were 18 years ago. While a brilliant mind, he is not the most engaging with his reading performance.

    A new perspective

    the author presents great data supports his conclusions. most of his claims are well informed and makes for an interesting book.

    could have used a better narrator

    Informative, intersting and entertaining

    As Robert Shiller is a well-known economists I expected a sophisticated and very informative audio book but the reality was even better. Not only does one learn a lot of financial markets and the role behavioral factors play but also the book is highly entertaining. Shiller succeeds in explaining known events such as the market crashs of 1929 and 1987 and also refers to the current financial crises which he saw coming quite a long time before it came true.I highly recommend this audio book for anyone interested in learning more about behavioral economics, market crashs or the current crisis.---------------------------------------------------------------Als bedeutender Ökonom bekannt hat Robert Shiller mit diesem Hörbuch meine Erwartungen noch übertroffen. Das Buch ist nicht nur sehr informativ und interessant, sondern auch sehr unterhaltsam. Mithilfe von psychologischen Faktoren erklärt Shiller das Verhalten an Finanzmärkten und behandelt bekannte Crashs wie die von 1929 und 1987. Interessabt ist ebenfalls der Hinweis auf die derzeitige Krise, die Shiller als einer der wenigen schin lange kommen sah.Ein sehr empfehlenswertes Buch für Fachmänner und Laien, die sich für Finanzmärkte interessieren.
