Financial analyst Byrne Hobart talks about his paper "Manias & Mimesis: Applying René Girard's Mimetic Theory to Financial Bubbles"
What a great kick-off meeting! I had planned on attending but family had another plan. :-) As a convert to Catholicism I've always been intrigued that the church has taught that Usury is a sin. I've never been an investor until recently and how I chose my investment service was based on mimesis! I had my own thoughts but the adviser's presentation was old school like me. :-) OF course the strategy is how to make money in a collapsing market but that's where we are. Rene Girard's theories help you to see the invisible and that's what I love most about my Catholic faith.
