Understanding Investor Behavior

Understanding Investor Behavior | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Discover how some strange human tendencies can play out in the market, posing the question: are we really rational?

Behavioral finance certainly reflects some of the attitudes embedded in the investment system. Behaviorists will argue that investors often behave irrationally, producing inefficient markets and mispriced securities - not to mention opportunities to make money. That may be true for an instant, but consistently uncovering these inefficiencies is a challenge. Questions remain over whether these behavioral finance theories can be used to manage your money effectively and economically. (To continue reading on behavioral finance, see Taking A Chance On Behavioral Finance.)

That said, investors can be their own worst enemies. Trying to out-guess the market doesn't pay off over the long term. In fact, it often results in quirky, irrational behavior, not to mention a dent in your wealth. Implementing a strategy that is well thought out and sticking to it may help you avoid many of these common investing mistakes.

Zygmunt Bauman - Liquid Love: On the Frailty of Human Bond

Zygmunt Bauman - Liquid Love: On the Frailty of Human Bond | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

 The uncanny frailty of human bonds, the feeling of insecurity that frailty inspires, and the conflicting desires to tighten the bonds yet keep them loose, are the principal themes of this important new book by Zygmunt Bauman, one of the most original and influential social thinkers of our time. It will be of great interest to students and scholars in sociology and in the social sciences and humanities generally, and it will appeal to anyone interested in the changing nature of human relationships.

History, Expectations, and Leadership in the Evolution of Social Norms

History, Expectations, and Leadership in the Evolution of Social Norms | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Abstract

We study the evolution of a social norm of “cooperation” in a dynamic environment.Each agent lives for two periods and interacts with agents from the previous and nextgenerations via a coordination game. Social norms emerge as patterns of behaviorthat are stable in part due to agents’ interpretations of private information aboutthe past, influenced by occasional commonly-observed past behaviors. For sufficientlybackward-looking societies, history completely drives equilibrium play, leading to asocial norm of high or low cooperation. In more forward-looking societies, there is apattern of “reversion” whereby play starting with high (low) cooperation reverts towardlower (higher) cooperation. The impact of history can be countered by occasional“prominent” agents, whose actions are visible by all future agents and who can leveragetheir greater visibility to influence expectations of future agents and overturn socialnorms of low cooperation.

Eli Levine's curator insight, February 27, 10:31 AM

Indeed, being forward looking helps one see greater possibilities than if one were to continuously be stuck in the past.

 

Another reason how conservatism in and of itself, is a detriment to the whole of human society.

 

Too much on the past.  Not enough potential to grow in the future.  Same old patterns, repeated again and again and again, with no real lessons being learned from any of it.

 

Silly brains.

 

Think about it.

Does Akerlof and Shiller's Animal Spirits provide a helpful new approach for macroeconomics?

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Animal Spirits (2009) is a timely and widely appreciated work focusing on the need to incorporate behavioral factors in macroeconomic analysis that draws on a famous reference of John Maynard Keynes. Nonetheless, it has a number of limitations. Those in several chapters are noted. Most important, however, the book does not break down "animal spirits" into its components, and distinguish sufficiently between (1) cognitive, (2) emotional, (3) cultural, and (4) visceral factors, or (5) those emanating from neuroeconomics. There is not enough reference to the advances of behavioral microeconomics and there is no explanation why so little progress has been made in behavioral macroeconomics despite approximately fifteen years of efforts.
