Didier Sornette: How we can predict the next financial crisis financial crisis

by sdfghjWWErtykjbv



The 2007-2008 financial crisis, you might think, was an unpredictable one-time crash. But Didier Sornette and his Financial Crisis Observatory have plotted a set of early warning signs for unstable, growing systems, tracking the moment when any bubble is about to pop. (And he’s seeing it happen again, right now.)

The entire global economic system is a two stroke engine consisting of greed and fear. Greed pushes and creates bubbles, bubbles everywhere, and fear eventually pops these bubbles. Since there no legal consequences to run away greed-speculation, bubbles will continue, our current stock market bubble will eventually or soon pop. The recent tax breaks given to large corporations to reshore their assets from overseas tax shelters were simply used to buy up their own stock to increase price per share; something for nothing. No new products, markets or growth in existing markets were or have been developed with these reshored tax sheltered funds, simply playing with supply and demand. Another dynamic is mergers and acquisitions which provide for economies of scale and subsequent massive job loss. Add to this volatile mix the idea of profit maximization where every penny is squeezed out of supply chains to optimize the profits of large multinationals. What is the consequence, growing numbers of people, families with limited discretionary money. Finally, the trigger is fear where stocks are dumped sometimes by computer algorithms.

Seriously not worth your time to watch this guy. The accent is NOT the problem. Here's the gist: "We have this "'observatory' full of really smart people. We can predict the future of statistical outlier events. I'm not going to tell you how we do it. 'But you should all be VERY afraid that if government doesn't intervene, you'll be sorry."

RE-TAR-DED

I was searching for a method to identify the problem signs at the end of a credit expansion ( which BTW are always fueled by the government that this jack@ss says will save us). I got no such satisfaction.

waste of time

Are global imbalances a result of a world savings glut and manipulation by Chinese authorities or a U.S. mortgage market so awash with cash that you could get a 100 percent mortgage with no income, no job and no assets?

Trash. The 2008 economic collapse was not surprising.

I've been familiar with Prof Sornette's work for many years. He is one of few geniuses working in academia today. What a pleasure it was hearing him speak.

he tells us nothing. I would advise Didier Sornette in the video to read the works of Dr. Steve Keen concerning the build up of excessive private debt and excessive growth rates in this in relation to speculation and bubbles. And read New World Disorder at https://www.amazon.com/New-World-Disorder-Terrorism-Democracy-ebook/dp/B076Z7HLR9 to educate himself about bubbles and crashes.

You can tell a bubble is a bubble by the composition and psychology of the participating investors. When an investment becomes viewed as a popular and easy way to make money, and a broad portion of the investment community is throwing money at it, you have a good idea that a bubble is brewing. I invite anybody interested in investment, economics, philosophy, books or movies to subscribe to my channel. Leave some questions or comments about topics you would like to hear about, if you want.

This video is a bit hard to follow due to the accents, sound quality, and the level of sophistication of the conversation. It is worth checking out, however. Nassim Taleb (Black Swan) and Didier Sornette (the speaker of the video above) debating these rare events and their predictability.

The factors that determine a crash are 2 things. Supply & demand.
2008 mortgage brokers giving record number of "NINJA" loans.
Next……
Interest only loans… reaching over 51% of all mortgages will be the tipping point. At this rate it will be 2020! People buying houses they cannot afford…..SIMPLE. impressing other people will cost you dearly!

Cutting a 17 min TED talk about bubbles short: Bubble Genisis = Low Interest rates. Bubble maturity/ pop = Interest Rates rise. 17 min of tedious research compacted. Thank me later.

Can you predict randomness? Are we god yet? Can we predict herd behavior? Can we predict the weather? Answer is no. It's wishfull thinking, and this ted title is the kind of talks you look at when your bored af and seek "dumbening" entertainment. Btw, the best you can do is statistical prediction. Good luck with that – James Simons bought up all geniuses in science areas.

Very thought-provoking…..would love to see what he suggests for the emergent increase of general interest rates in the world's largest mrkets.

Explain where the losses went. Was it cash or simply paper? Why does it trickle down? Is the bettor using money that if lost, effects others? Should that be legal then…as it wouldn't be his money?
