LongHaul Posted June 12, 2015 Share Posted June 12, 2015 Isaac Newton was clearly a smart man. He invested in the South Sea Company. Got out at a profit. Then apparently, saw his friends getting richer, invested again at a much higher price, and then lost his shirt. And this was in 1719/1720 during the South Sea Bubble. How do people get sucked into these bubbles even when they know it is craziness? Stories welcome.
