The Little Book of Big Bubbles:A History of Financial Greed and Collective Insanity (Digital Ebook)
Whether it's tulips, real estate, or even Beanie Babies: asset bubbles are thought to inflate and pop without rhyme or reason. This is not true.
Humans are greedy. We are susceptible to being deluded by our own collective insanity. We ignore the lessons of the past and make the same mistakes over and over.
What are financial bubbles, and how do we navigate them? In this book, we explore ten of history's most significant bubbles and identify what they have in common to build a framework for recognising future ones.
