RSA Thursday: Pop Finance

Join Brooke Harrington for some very timely insights into socially responsible investing, shareholder activism and the mind of the market.


We welcome sociologist Brooke Harrington, whose new book Pop Finance is a fascinating survey of investor behaviour and the massive rise in popular engagement in US stock market in the 90’s, when investing in stocks, once the province of a privileged elite, became a mass activity involving more than half of Americans.

Join us for some very timely insights into socially responsible investing, shareholder activism and the mind of the market.

Praise for Pop Finance
"Superb, remarkably timely, and an extraordinary contribution to several fields. A wonderful study of how groups do and don't work, and a unique examination of how people really think about investments." Cass R. Sunstein, University of Chicago
