New Perspectives on Asset Price Bubbles

William Poole

Oxford University Press

This chapter suggests that the large literature on asset price bubbles has not incorporated the results from control theory from the 1960s and the rational expectations literature from the 1970s, and that it would be a mistake for the government to attempt to influence, through direct market intervention, an asset price suspected of displaying a bubble. It also argues that the problem with a bubble is not the bubble per se but the accumulation of bubble-related assets in leveraged portfolios. Finally, it discusses three key reforms to strengthen the banking system.

Keywords:   asset price bubbles, control theory, rational expectations, leveraged portfolios, banking system
