Abstract

In Boom and Bust: A Global History of Financial Bubbles, William Quinn and John D. Turner take readers on a 300-year tour through the history of the world’s most significant financial bubbles, aiming to improve understanding of why bubbles happen, their destructive and sometimes beneficial consequences and potential policy measures to help prevent bubbles. Hans G. Despain praises the book as a well-written, entertaining and accessible read that is particularly impressive in providing a predicative analytical framework for theorists, policymakers and investors.
