Room W142, Williams Building, Hendon Campus, Middlesex University, London NW4 4BT
(Rescheduled from Wednesday 5 March 2014).
Professor in Economics Praveen Kujal presents his inaugural lecture 'Asset Market Bubbles'.
Praveen will take you for a walk through asset market bubbles in experimental markets and look at some behavioural issues. Bubbles and crashes are pervasive, elusive and little understood. Economic experiments have been a useful tool to study the formation and the nature of bubbles. Bubbles were first 'accidently' discovered in experiments by Smith, Suchanek and Williams (1988). Since then bubbles have been found to be robust to different variations such as short selling, buying on the margin, brokerage fee, a limit price change rule, stock broker participation, as well as participants playing with their own money.
