Bubbles and Manias, Panics and Crashes: A Short History of Investor Irrational Exuberance
What are investment bubbles? How can we recognize them? What are the conditions necessary for their creation? Do they always end in panics or crashes, or can they merely deflate? From tulip bulbs to crypto-currencies like bitcoin, we examine investment bubbles and manias. We also look at how they end and consider ways to avoid investing in bubbles and their inevitable collapse.
