Questions for research on Bubbleconomics

To understand what Bubbleconomics means (or whether it even really exists), I think a list of questions such as the following is valuable:

  • What is the definition of Bubbleconomics?
  • What is an economic bubble?
  • What are the characteristics of an economic bubble?
  • What are the causes of an economic bubble?
  • What are the results of an economic bubble?
  • Is an economic bubble good, bad, or neutral, and from whose point of view?
  • Is the world economy as a whole an economic bubble of some kind?
  • How do individuals and organizations behave during an economic bubble?
  • Can bubbles be controlled or prevented?
  • What are some case studies of economic bubbles and what are the lessons to be drawn?
  • What should organizations do during bubbles?
  • What should individuals do during bubbles?
  • If the overall economy is a bubble, what are the risks?
  • If the overall economy is a bubble, should anything be done about it? What if anything can be done about it?
  • What are some metrics that can be use to measure and describe an economic bubble?
  • If Bubbleconomics is an accurate model of the current economy, what are the alternatives and how could they be implemented?
