Bubbles - Theory, Policy Implications and Historical Perspectives
This workshop aims to bring together financial economists, theorists, and economic historians working on bubbles in asset markets. It will provide a forum for discussion of recent research on the causes and consequences of bubbles. Some of the possible topics include: • What is the relationship between liquidity and bubble episodes? • Do bubbles matter for macroeconomic activity? • What do we learn from historical bubble episodes about the factors driving them? • When can asset price bubbles be beneficial? • What do we learn from growing evidence of cognitive biases and mistaken beliefs contributing to periods of overvaluation? • How large are house price bubbles – and should monetary policy be used to tackle them?
