Will Shiller's Subprime Solutions Work?

October 14, 2008
Robert J. Shiller, the Arthur M. Okun Professor of Economics at Yale University, will deliver the keynote address at Securities Forum 2008: Weathering the Economic Storm.  The event will be held on October 23, 2008 at the Sheraton Hotel in Stamford, Connecticut from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Shiller replaces MIT Economics Professor Stephen A. Ross who was previously scheduled to speak at the event.
Professor Shiller is best known for his extensive writings in the area of financial market analysis.  His book Irrational Exuberance, published in sixteen languages, predicted the bursting of the tech stock bubble eight years ago.  Just last month, Shiller released his latest book, Subprime Solution:  How the Global Financial Crisis Happened and What to Do About It.  The book analyzes the housing and economic crisis and offers timely steps to address the problem.
Professor Shiller writes the "Economic View" column for The New York Times as well as a regular column, "Finance in the 21st Century", for Project Syndicate which publishes around the world.
