Financial Management Association Meetings: "Overview and Ideas Session on Social Finance" (10/13/2023)

How social networks impact decision-making in economics and finance? On one hand, social networks facilitate the transmission of valuable information, reducing frictions and leading to more efficient decisions. On the other hand, they can also spread rumors, drive disagreement, and result in market failures and investor losses. The session covers the implications of social networks on belief formation and trading, price dynamics, firm outcomes, meme stocks, online lending platforms, and crowdfunding.
