Boombustology: Spotting Financial Bubbles Before They Burst Boombustology: Spotting Financial Bubbles Before They Burst

by Vikram Mansharamani

Book Reviews

"Asset class bubbles are by far the most important events in the life of both stock markets and economies. Boombustology is a comprehensive, informative, and entertaining look into how bubbles form, what really constitutes a bubble, and, critically, the causes and circumstances of bubbles breaking. It is essential reading for any bubbliophile."
 -- Jeremy Grantham, Co-founder and Chief Investment Strategist, GMO

"Imaginative, accessible, and blessedly concise, Boombustology is a Baedeker for these boomy and busty times."
 -- James Grant, Grant's Interest Rate Observer

"If there's one thing that cleaves Wall Street's winners from its losers, it's the ability to say, ‘I've seen this movie, and I know how it ends.' Vikram Mansharamani's Boombustology will entertain readers with an entire film festival of past, present, and future investment disaster flicks that will make them laugh, make them cry, and save their bacon."
 -- William J. Bernstein, bestselling author of The Investor's Manifesto: Preparing for Prosperity, Armageddon, and Everything in Between

"Investors are attracted to bubbles. To paraphrase Orwell, they find themselves playing with fire without even knowing that fire is hot. Vikram Mansharamani's highly readable book will set them right. It provides a sound intellectual framework for identifying bubbles before they burst. If you buy only one investment book this year, make it Boombustology."
 -- Edward Chancellor, author of Devil Take the Hindmost: A History of Financial Speculation

"Through an artful and accessible melding of theoretical frameworks and historical cases, Boombustology provides the essential tools to identify and navigate the financial booms and busts that can be so hazardous to one's portfolio. Required reading for all investors."
 -- Paul A. Reeder, President, PAR Capital Management

"Who is the better investor: the generalist or the expert specialist? In this spirited book, Vikram Mansharamani brings to life five famous boom-bust episodes and argues for a multidisciplinary, generalist approach. Boombustology is an engaging read for specialists and generalists alike."
 -- John Geanakoplos, James Tobin Professor of Economics at Yale University; External Professor, the Santa Fe Institute; and Partner, Ellington Capital Management
