Vikram Mansharamani • Presented by SPEAK Inc. • Towering Indicators Published on Jan 10, 2013 Author, Yale University Lecturer, & Tiger21 Scholar Boom-bust cycles. They`re occurring more frequently than ever. The most notorious ones impact financial markets — but they impact nations, healthcare, food, energy, education, technology and many other areas as well. Given their frequency, why are we still surprised when unsustainable scenarios burst? Vikram Mansharamani, author of Boombustology, is expert at helping people recognize and manage the risk of bubble trouble. He steps back from complex market dynamics and uses a multiple-lens framework to look at disparate data and then connect the dots — providing actionable insights; is there a bubble, where is it in its lifespan and what actions should you take to avoid bubble risk? A maverick mind and a contrarian by nature, Mansharamani achieved success during his two decades in the financial markets by looking at signs on the road less travelled — analyzing financial markets with his powerful but unique toolkit. As a speaker, Mansharamani has a gift for connecting with audiences — he is engaging with a keen sense of humor and helps individuals and organizations identify and navigate the booms before they bust — a skill that has earned him the confidence of many of the world`s most impressive companies. Mansharamani is the first resident scholar at Tiger21, a peer-to-peer learning group for high net-worth investors and a Lecturer at Yale where his class, “Financial Booms and Busts,” is among the most popular on campus. He is a regular contributor to financial media including: Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Bloomberg, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Korean Times, The South China Morning Post, The Daily Beast and many others.
