Re: 回复： [Behavioral-Finance] 116 th month newsletter
- Dear Weng, congratulations and best wishes for your activity
in economic psychology research and thanks for your interest.
It happens that I'm independent of all research organizations
and I never was related to any, my interest in those topics being
personal and it started even before any academic study existed
on them. Of course when I heard later of the first academicresearches on BF I got very interested and decided to promotethe topic, a bit as a "rebel" against the standard paradigms (well,they include some truth also, but they needed much to berelativized)
For example my "stock image coefficient" conceptis purely personal and practical. It is still not, as far as I know,studied in academia (but never proved wrong either by academia),maybe because I'm not an academic and don't make scientificpublication in the official format.I'm of course at your disposal for further details about my work, butI'm sure you will find in this group highly knowledgeable correspondentsthat are active in research in some very good institutes and maybe are...near to Brooklyn (my place is France / European union, equaldistance between NYC and Beijing ;-))Maybe you can give us also a short presentation of the central universityof finance and economics in china.
Best wishes again.

日期: 2009年12月6日,周日,下午6:15Hi, dear members and visitors!
Here is your 116th month newsletter.
1) Monthly activity
The total number of non bouncing members is eroding towards the
1800 mark, the inflow does not fully compensate the ouftlow.
The monthly number of messages is only 8930 (+30, a stat that
includes the deleted spam).
But we have members that bring information on BE/BF topics,
which makes me sure that there is still a potential for new
advances and debates, that explore our topics a bit further
than many commentators that just scrape the surface, now that
BE/BF got popular. Many of them are discovering, a bit late,
that psychology took a large part in the bubble and crash (even
if there was other explanations, such as a lax US (and other
countries) fiscal and monetary policies and supervision neglect
by monetary and financial authorities, under some political
agenda and the pretence of "market efficiency", the now dented
By the way, on a lighter side this is now the month in which
many of us explore personally the behavioral economics of end
of year spending. We can detect directly which heuristics drive
our choices of presents, in a situation of risk, uncertainty and
scarcity of resources, exactly what the economic science is
So, in advance, good exploration and best season greetings !
