Editorial Reviews

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.

Mind Over Money is a very good compare-and-contrast discussion of two primary sides of the academic view of markets - the efficient market side and the behavioral side. It was released in 2010, so the financial crisis featured in the film's coverage, along with other historical market bubbles. Numerous interview clips of some of the most prominent proponents of each side are included (Eugene Fama and Robert Shiller being two of the highest profile).

Overall, the documentary leans toward favoring the behavioral argument. The film provides a lot of evidence that we humans do not act rationally, especially where money is concerned. One of the more interesting experiments shown was how bubbles are created in the lab with experiment participants trading a depreciating asset. The video, though, does a good job of including contrary arguments as well.

Definitely worth viewing.

I am taking multiple international economy classes right now and I find them interesting so I watched this documentary. i found it very interesting. I agree with its assertions for the most part. I talked with my professors about this documentary and they said the guys from Chicago are looney and are infamous for it. I can't say, but the documentary does seem to provide ample evidence of that imo. I wish some of the experiments were presented differently. I wish it was a little more in depth. But, I have been talking with my buddies about this for a couple of weeks and if I trust a documentary enough to bring it up with friends, it deserves a 4.5 star for me. (P.S. The guy who said this is like the Koch brothers is trolling. I am a independent and in journalism school along with econ, so I think a lot about bias, and after watching the documentary, i felt like it had more of a left leaning bias, but not too great of one to be a problem.)

I saw this on Nova and had to have it. After 35 years in the field of financial and estate planning (as a tax concentration lawyer and financial advisor)I cannot begin to express how many times I have seen clients mess up their finances because of an inability to circumvent human nature! The competition, loss thinking and gullibility of people to sales pitches can be nipped in the bud by understanding some of the concepts presented: buying a $20 bill for $28? - only one of several very interesting experiments! But the bubble section is a must see. There are smart people right now buying into bubbles without a clue that they are being spurred on by sales material - they think it is "information". Beware.

Well documented, care was taken to explore events of the previous housing boom and bust. A reasonable explanation of human behavior and money.
