All Yale alumni and their guests are invited to join a Yale SOM Master Class taking place at the Los Angeles Athletic Club on Tuesday, October 22nd. Professor Robert J. Shiller will deliver a 60-minute master class drawn from his new book, Narrative Economics: How Stories Go Viral and Drive Major Economic Events. Professor Shiller will lead a discussion about how to understand and predict major economic events better by taking account of popular economic narratives as they change through time. Issues relate to fake news, economic confidence, and financial crises. The book is an outgrowth of his 2017 American Economic Association Presidential address. The evening will close with a networking reception at which appetizers and beverages will be served. Copies of Professor Shiller's book are available to purchase alongside registration at a discounted rate and will be distributed during check-in on the evening of the event. All books will be signed in advance by Professor Shiller. Space is limited; registration required. We hope to see you there.
