Robert Shiller is such a well-known and well-respected economist that he has his own index named after him. The Case-Shiller Home Price Index is based on work by Shiller and Karl Case. The Nobel Prize winner forecasted the tech and housing bubbles, and readers look to his text to better understand how bubbles happen. Bubbles and market cycles are important to understand, and a well-formulated investment strategy can help you avoid the biggest pitfalls of the boom and bust cycle. Shiller argues that psychologically driven volatility is a risk in all asset markets, including the stock market. Description from The Balance.
