Popping bubbles

I saw this post with cool pictures on popping bubbles and I thought about Alan Greenspan.  Sir Alan says you cannot recognize bubbles until after they have burst.  I think that’s nonsense – certainly in the case of the “Great Credit Bubble.”

Here’s a quote from the article for you inspired by the former Fed Chairman:

“…bubbles. Apparently they don’t pop, but instead rip and tear. How violent! But still so beautiful.”
