L’essor des Hedge Funds. Quels changements pour les ménages ?

Abstract : The hedge fund industry has considerably grown in the last few years and recent events show changes in the way individuals act towards the financial sphere. This leads to the following question: "Does the rise of hedge funds have an impact on the behavior of households? ".To answer this question, we conducted an empirical study to observe public opinion about the financial sphere and hedge funds. The study showed that households consider speculation to be responsible for the subprime crisis and that they have a negative image of hedge funds because of their recourse to short selling, which they consider unethical. This has led to feelings of "betrayal" and "revenge" towards the financial sector, leading some of them to enter conflict with the latter, as shown by the GameStop affair, or to move towards a new type of financial system, as suggested by the recent strong development of crypto currencies.
