This book provides a comprehensive and critical analysis of research outcomes on the equity home bias puzzle. It introduces "place attachment" as a new explanation for the "equity home bias" puzzle and looks to the future of place attachment and its effect on home bias.
For the first time, a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the extant literature is provided. The author presents a philosophically multi-paradigmatic view of "place attachment" – the bonding that occurs between individuals and their meaningful environments. Offering an overview of the literature on 22 different topics in which variations of "home bias" are present, the author demonstrates that place attachment is a contributing factor to all of these. Finally, the author analyses the social-psychological underpinnings of Place Attachment and considers the effect of multi-culturalism on the future of Equity Home Bias.
The book’s unique approach discusses the issues in conceptual terms, rather than using data and statistical methods. This book is both multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary, and therefore, it is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers who are interested in economics, finance, philosophy, and/or methodology, introducing them to a new line of research.
