Financial Booms and Busts
Financial booms and busts have been plaguing financial markets for hundreds of years. Dr. Mansharamani has been an active participant in and observer of financial bubbles since interning at Bear Stearns in the late 1980s. His current research has been focused on identifying unsustainable booms. Much of this research is summarized in Boombustology: Spotting Financial Bubbles Before They Burst.

Bubble Dynamics in Non-Financial Domains
The framework developed by Dr. Mansharamani to identify financial bubbles before they burst has proven equally powerful in identifying bubble dynamics in non-financial domains. While this research is in the early stages of development, it has been useful in uncovering sustainability concerns in healthcare/medicine, education, and art markets.
