Title: Animal Spirits: How Human Psychology Drives the Economy, and Why It Matters for Global Capitalism

Abstract

In his lecture, Shiller discusses the premise of his 2009 book, coauthored with the Nobel Prize-winning economist George A. Akerlof. The book discusses how “animal spirits,” or human emotions such as confidence, fear, and a concern for fairness, drive financial events, including today’s global financial crisis.
