Behind The Markets Podcast: Robert Shiller
Show from 11/8/19
In this special edition of the Behind the Markets Podcast hosts Jeremy Schwartz and Jeremy Siegel speak to one of America's top economists, Bob Shiller. They kick off the show discussing politics and how the election will influence markets. Then they get into Shiller's newest book "Narrative Economics: How Stories Go Viral and Drive Major Economic Events." Shiller argues that studying popular stories that affect individual and collective economic behavior, what he calls "narrative economics" has the potential to vastly improve our ability to predict, prepare for, and lessen the damage of financial crises.
