CFA Society San Francisco is Pleased to Offer Members Special Access
to the Silk Lectures Featuring Nobel Laureates: Robert Shiller
Sponsored by University of San Francisco
Narrative Economics: How Stories that Humans Tell Can Shape the Economy.
Join us for an evening of enrichment, enjoyment, and socializing with Bay Area professionals and academics with Dr. Robert Shiller. Dr. Shiller will discuss his new book called "Narrative Economics". In his talk, he will describe stories that humans have built around a particular environment which can influence human actions and ultimately, collectively, influence the entire economy. These stories can range from believing that tech stocks can only go up, that housing prices can never go down, or that this time is different. In some ways, Shiller's narrative economics ties into Keynes' idea of animal spirits, where these spirits are people's collective belief in an appealing story. Finally, he will share some other gems from his life in the Q&A with USF's Professor Ludwig Chincarini.
This is a CFA Society San Francisco member-only event.
