The Institute of Banking is pleased to host an upcoming programme taster lecture for the Professional Certificate in Asset Management with Dr. Paul Ryan. This talk explores the history of financial bubbles from the South Seas bubble right up to the Global Financial Crisis. It discusses how the wisdom of crowds can turn into the madness of crowds. Bubbles are not random events but rather follow predictable path dependent trajectories. They are not simply economic phenomena. They have deep rooted behavioural, emotional and psychoanalytical aspects. Examples will be drawn from recent history including the Dot.Com bubble that burst in early 2000 and the enormously destructive Irish property bubble that imploded in 2007.
