FREE READ A Crisis of Beliefs: Investor Psychology and Financial Fragility í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB How beliefs shape financial markets and expose the economy to major risksThe collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 caught markets and regulators by surprise Nicola Gennaioli and Andrei Shleifer walk readers through the unraveling of Lehman and the. Standard economic theory is a very elegant and internally consistent body of mathematics that aims to explain human behavior This colossus has however recently succumbed in the authors words to a series of daring and effective hit and run attacks p 140 both from mainstream economists with co author Andrei Shleifer very much at the forefront but also from the currently fashionable field of behavioral Economics The 2008 financial crisis which the theory struggles to explain was rather inconvenient as well Perhaps a coup de grace evenA theory is not dead however until you have another one to put in its place Even then in the words of Gunnar Myrdal in Economics all doctrines live persistently no new theories ever supplant the old That s where a Crisis of Beliefs comes in A Crisis of Beliefs is a bold first attempt to broaden the foundations of the field by layering it on top of the imperfect judgement and behavior of humans After first motivating the discussion by summarizing their previous work on Neglected Risk and its potential role in the crisis of 2008 Gennaioli and Shleifer introduce the concept of Diagnostic Beliefs which humans form based on the behavioral heuristic of Representativeness an idea due to rock star psychologists Tversky and Kahneman Rational Expectations are but a special case of Diagnostic Beliefs and therefore do fit within this frameworkTo make a long story short Representativeness is the heuristic whereby because at 10% of the Irish population red haired people are ten times prevalent among the Irish than they are among all Caucasians of whom they are but 1% the moment we see somebody with red hair we mistakenly if you do the math presume they must be Irish Applied to the observation of past investment returns it plays havoc with future investment decisions the small print on all investment advisories notwithstandingThe math is easy to follow and that s a good thing Economics may not yet be tangled in String Theory but if you don t know your stochastic calculus and your differential geometry you can t get an advanced degree in the subject any longer This is a return to the times when you could get a Nobel for something as elegant as the Capital Asset Pricing Model I read the whole thing in the tube Proofs for the less trusting are to be found in the AppendixThe summary is as follows if we accept that Representativeness is a decent approximation for the heuristic along which investment decisions are made then we can build a model for the economy where investment cycles are built in from the start output that turns out to be higher than expected will lead us to overinvest in the next cycle but our expectations from that next round are likelier than not to be frustrated because they were founded on the unrealistic heuristic of Representativeness which now kicks in the other way And so onIt s very very elegant I m not sure it works with asset markets as well as it works for investment in the real economy and I ve no idea how I d implement it in continuous time but it works as advertisedPersonally I d like to see an economist model Chuck Prince s brain when he explained that when the music s playing you ve got to get up and dance because I m reasonably convinced that s precisely the human trait that keeps us in the game even when we know we re malinvesting it s our competitors for the house in the good school district that we re fighting not the housing market itselfBut that takes nothing away from what is guaranteed to be a classic Buy and read it now so you can tell your kids one day you were there from ground zero
