  3. 3. Are bubbles all bad ? Idea Xchange 2009 explores a controversial theme. A theme that is extremely relevant today, specially in Emerging Markets, where prudent policies (this time around) have prevented a collapse of the financial system, thereby, of the country as a whole. There is a popular belief that bubbles are necessarily bad things that need to be nipped in the bud, rather than be allowed to prosper and grow, because the bursting of such bubbles is very painful for large parts of a country’s or region’s population. On the other hand, it could be argued by some that irrespective of the consequences, bubbles, in fact, lead to higher growth, raise standards of living, encourage innovation, etc., all of which are long lasting, secular changes that outlive any short term impact of a bursting bubble. Both sides of the coin face off in this provocative debate, turning around pre-conceived ideas and shaking up the status quo. Policy makers like Mani Shankar Aiyar, and economists and business leaders like Anantha Nageswaran, Ashok Soota and Brian Brown, as well as leading minds like Edilberto de Jesus participate.
