Why Stock Markets Crash

Didier Sornette

Princeton University Press

This chapter examines bubbles, crises, and crashes in emergent markets, including six Latin American stock market indices (Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, and Chile) and six Asian stock market indices (Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Korea). It also considers the correlation between markets following major international events. After providing an overview of speculative bubbles in emerging markets, the chapter discusses the methodology of the study on the Latin American and Asian markets. It then describes the Russian stock market and concludes with an analysis of the implications of the experiences of emergent markets for mitigations of bubbles, crises, and crashes.

Keywords:   bubble, emergent markets, Latin America, stock market indices, Asia, speculative bubble, Russia, stock market
