The RFS-IU Conference - The Causes and Consequences of Recent Financial Market Bubbles
ISDEX, an authoritative and widely cited internet stock index, rose from 100 in January 1996 to 1100 in February 2000 – an incredible increase of about 1000% in four years – only to fall down to 600 in May 2000 – an incredible decrease of about 45% in four months. Amongst big rises and falls in the history of stock market prices, this episode ranks amongst the most spectacular. The RFS-IU conference focuses on these recent financial market bubbles. It aims to address the following three questions: - Was it a bubble? (How do you define bubbles ex-ante? Can you even define bubbles ex-post?) - What caused it? (Investors? Managers? Financial advisors? Government policies? Media? Academics?) - Did it matter? (Any real effects?) The answers to these three research questions touch upon all subdisciplines of finance – asset pricing, corporate finance, market microstructure, behavioral finance, international finance, law and finance, and real estate finance.
