According to an interdisciplinary group of psychologists and economists from the University of Extreme Importance, New York, one of the reasons for the financial crisis leads back to the eighties and earlier.
The experts claim that a substantial number of stock brokers are preconditioned to subconsciously work towards bear markets, even if they do not profit from it. The survey leads to the assumtion, that the brokers have been psychologically programmed by the exposion to teddy bears during early childhood.
In order to reduce the probability of a future financial crisis, it’s strongly recommended to use teddy bulls instead of teddy bears for all parents of future stock brokers.
