Do We Talk Ourselves into Bubbles and Recessions?
An interview with Nobel Prize winning economist Robert Shiller, who is the author of the new book Narrative Economics and the iconic book Irrational Exuberance. Shiller discusses how the stories we tell one another drive the economies of the world – sometimes into bubbles, sometimes into tearing down walls (like the Berlin Wall in 1989), and other times into depressions.
