Tulipmania
  • Engels
  • 446

In 1630s, the Netherlands was gripped by tulipmania: a speculative fever unprecedented in scale and, as history would have it, folly. The author lays waste to the legends, revealing that while the 1630s did see a speculative bubble in tulip prices, neither the height of bubble nor its bursting were anywhere near as dramatic as we tend to think.
