How Investors Use Stories to Tame Uncertainty

Produced by:
The Institute for New Economic Thinking

An Interview with:
David Tuckett

Interviewed by:
Perry G. Mehrling

Professor Perry G. Mehrling of Columbia University and the Institute of New Economic Thinking talks to David Tuckett, Professor of Psychoanalysis at University College London, about his Emotional Finance project where he uses standard sociological interviewing techniques to investigate a series of leading fund managers to find out how they made decisions to buy, hold or sell assets. He says that because future values are fundamentally uncertain financial markets cannot be driven by calculation of economic fundamentals alone — instead, they are driven by stories about those fundamentals, created through skill and imagination. Based on these interviews David Tuckett merges insights from Keynes, from sociology, and from psychoanalysis to develop what he calls emotional finance – this is new economic thinking.
