Not His Best Work - 30 janvier 2015
Par George Bush - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The past several decades have brought the rise of financial capitalism. Shiller contends, despite adverse opinions to the contrary, that changes must be made to broaden its scope - not to constrain its innovative power. In this book, he'd like to also encourage students to pursue careers in finance - even if that means eg. making mortgage even more complex.

Unfortunately, I found his meandering style unappealing, and his posture vs. possible financial abuses overly apologetic and unrealistic. As for concluding that finance capitalism is 'gradually improving' - that seems unrealistic as well, given the almost total lack of criminal prosecution involving players that played major roles creating the Great Recession.

A recommended must read 15 octobre 2013
Par N. Rosen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I will admit to not having finished the book. It is still a work in progress. A family member who is a doctor, an Ivy League graduate, a bio tech entrepreneur and an instructor in finance at Johns Hopkins recommended this book highly to me. He said it is required reading for the course he teaches. He recommended it to me because although I love things political I was uninterested in economics. Because of contemporary economic events in finance that have had such grave and important impacts on world events, I thirsted for knowledge in a subject that is elementary to the study of politics and I aver necessary for survival.

As I begin this book I can see why my relative recommended it. It relates the field of finance and economics in a very readable way and gives one an understanding I think of the big picture in an entertaining easy-to-read manner. I am a slow reader but I intend to finish this book and so far am more than satisfied with it.

I don't want to live in that society. 7 février 2015
Par J. Edgar Mihelic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Amazon didn't link the hardback and the paperback version of this book, so here's my review of the hardback.

I had first taken notice of Shiller's new book back when it first came out in hardcover. It was on my wishlist for a bit, but got deleted on one of my frequent reconsiderations of what to read and when to do it. I don't read too horribly quickly, so every book I choose is an investment in reading time. However, when the Swedish thing was announced, I thought I'd have a look.

The layout of the book is rather rote. He takes different roles that exist in finance capitalism, and explains why they exists and why they're important. His basic outlook is that markets work, but they need to be more liquid and there need to be more of them. It made me think of the Leninist lamenting Stalin and claiming that true Socialism has never existed ergo the social system has not been disproven despite the states that have flown the banner and have failed (basically my starting position).

So basically, the book was kind of boring until it started to make me angry, which is half the reason I read finance and economics books. It started on a chapter on insurance. He makes the claim that the BP oil spill was exaggerated in its effects by the media, and that everyone was actually fine because of insurance (64-5). People got paid back, so the suffering was ,moot, and the cleanup was effective. I don't have counter evidence to being forth to show that he's wrong, but this is just evidence that shows the worldview that opens economics up to criticism. Not everything is measured in economic costs, and not everything can be quantified. There is a human element that is missing.

For example, he defends inequality as necessary for a vibrant economy (141) but doesn't go into how much, or even define what a vibrant economy is. I feel that if you're going to say the Gini can't or shouldn't be zero, you should at least look at what an optimal measurement might be. Otherwise, it feels like elite hand-waving, ignoring the problems of the lower classes.

So basically, for Schiller, there will be losers, and that's fine as long as people have full information and participate in these deep and wide markets in a finance capitalism utopia. It just feels wrong. I can't imagine looking back at 2005 and saying that the main problem that was developing was asymmetries of information, though that was an issue. To me, there were larger structural issues that are part and parcel of the system that we live under.

Finally I have to add this to close, because it didn't fit in with the main thread. You may be aware of the negative feelings a lot of people have about Goldman Sachs. One thing some of their people did was load up a crappy deal, loaded off on a company and then took positions where they would benefit when the thing they designed to fail failed. Look up Goldman Sachs and ABACUS when you have time. It was an incredible nefarious plot that illustrates what people can do when they have financial power and no sunlight.

I bring this up because in the book, Schiller defends the deal (220). I don't want to be part of that world.

The books good, I am not an eco major, but if I was I think it would produce great insight into the field and the roles of each professional within this economy.

Classic Shiller 5 décembre 2013
Par Don Peppard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It is classic Shiller--clear and uncomplicated prose combined with interesting analysis and suggestions for reform. Comprehensive look at "finance," but too forgiving of the many sins of some of its practioners.
