Mind Over Money investigates the shattering impact the recent global financial meltdown had on how economists think. Why did so few of the brightest minds in finance not only fail to predict the crash but also argue that it was impossible? With insights from experts and scientific experiments that highlight the hidden money drives in us all, NOVA explores a seismic shift in our efforts to understand the marketplace.

Economists - Delusions of Competence

By The old man and the see

from Budapest

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS NOVA: Mind Over Money DVD:

Economists shroud themselves in self grandeur and the cult of the chosen few. In fact they are no more "unsinkable" than any other evolved "chimpanzee."

Greed, Money, and Power have always dominated over Empathy, Compassion, and True Democracy, and probably always will as long as there is a planet.

Yes, Virginia, where there are no policemen,there is no order. Check and Balance is just as necessary as it always was.

Different perspective on "professional"!

By BN

from Aiea,HI

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS NOVA: Mind Over Money DVD:

This show provided yet another perspective as to how some money "professionals" are thinking. Gives average people a chance to make better decisions on what to do with their money. Learn about rational and behavioral economics. Also watch "The Inside Job", "I Want Your Money", "Waiting for Superman", and Jon Stossel's "Freeloaders".

Top Notch Investigative Work

By Penny

from South Beach, Fla

Comments about PBS NOVA: Mind Over Money DVD:

An extremely well put together look at how large a role human emotion plays in investing, particularly in the formation of investment bubbles. Confirms what we've known or suspected for years about the real estate investment boom and the key role derivatives played in the crash of 2008. Historical precedent is given for investment bubbles which reaches back to 17th c. Holland. Quite thought-provoking and a must see!
