Abstract

There is a serious reason to open this paper with the lyrics of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s song, Perambulator.  The theme is a sarcastic description of Nigerian government officials and how they take one step forward, ten steps backward in making public policies, thereby perambulating instead of advancing. ................................................................................

Abstract

According to Financial Theory, asset price is equivalent to the (expected) current discounted value of its dividends, i.e., its market fundamental. Fluctuations in asset prices are considered keeping this in mind (Leroy and Porter [25] and Shiller [32, 33]). Assets will be valued according to their market fundamentals (Tirole:1982: 1163-1181) When the price of asset is inflated due to high demand asset bubble occurs. High money supply and liquidity in the financial system fuels a bubble growth as it allows people to invest more money and allows investors to leverage their capital (borrowing from the banks and further investing in assets).
