With a new Afterword on the current state of the stock market, the ongoing debate over the “new economy,” and the larger implications of “irrational exuberance.”

In this controversial, hard-hitting account of today’s explosive market, Robert J. Shiller, a leading expert on market volatility, evokes Alan Greenspan’s infamous 1996 reference, “irrational exuberance,” to explain the alternately soaring and declining stock market. Shiller’s unconventional yet persuasive argument credits an unprecedented confluence of events with driving stocks to uncharted heights, and he analyzes the structural, cultural, and psychological factors behind these levels of growth not reflected in any other sector of the economy. Now more relevant than ever, this analysis is both chilling and convincing—a must-read for the individual investor, the policy maker, and the investment professional.

    " Robert Shiller is such an amazing analytically mind and a very unpretentious personality. The book is not the number crunching approach of the Case Shiller Index, but a spot on identification of the booms we have suffered, yes, Suffered in the past 2 decades. Great information for anybody, not just figureheads. "

    " Solid overview on markets and speculation. Most likely this should be required reading on what makes a bubble, what the market might have been like (as opposed to what we think its been like) and just a great overall read - albeit a little dry "
