Bring on the next bubble! Bubbles have usually been more empowerment for more people


Historically, the results of bubbles have usually been more empowerment for more people. Historically, bubbles have provided an explosion of funds which blasted away the entrenchments of an old oligarchy not only to the benefit of entrepreneurs but also to the benefit of consumers in general. Think of the constantly falling price of transportation and communication. If we should find a way to stop bubbles, if we were to put the genie of irrational exuberance back in the bottle, the winners will be whoever are the incumbents at the time and the losers will be all those who could benefit from another great breakthrough in infrastructure like railroads, canals and the Internet.

Economist are required to model an impossibly complex system of interdependencies between 7 billion volitionally volatile agents all running behavioural algorithms centred on short sighted localized self-interest. Economist are largely using linear tools to model the organismic dynamics that underpin human economic interdependencies with no widely available organic big picture framing set at hand. Even if god were to hand delivered us am effective model of all those organic interdependency bottleneck and the economic mechanisms by which to solve them we would be hard pressed to implement them due to the tenacious evolutionary inbred power of volitional selfinterest all running shortterm interference

Before 1999 and irrational exuberance how many ordinary consumers were aware of financial bubbles as a phenomenon? Now everyone knows about cyclical greed and fear, and is looking for bubbles in every story. How much does this pervasive awareness and discussion of bubbles affect the cycle itself. Can we avoid the worst excesses of bubbles through education? I am concerned that all of the infrastructure that produced 2008 is still in place, and the printing press is running as fast is it can go. Whenever I talk to a lawyer in securitisation or other structured finance field, they tell me they are busier than they ever were including at peak of 2007.

The first stage of inflating a balloon is hard, as the surface tension per unit increase in volume is considerable. As inflation occurs, the rate of growth must fall, but each incremental investment is easier the walls of the bubble are thinner and less resistant to growth. When value perception relies on the rate of growth all bubbles are doomed. Otherwise, If value can be matched to a proposition that sustains money in vs money out the balloon can be tied off. If not the skin gets weaker and it bursts. The most sustainable Bubbles relate to a process that becomes a beneficial habit, rather than a problem cure. A sustained bubble seen from a distance is merely an incremental market change.

There is no bubble in tech companies. Its been largely pricked. The mom and pops that Taffer is referring to would be the dumb money that bought the IPO. Government regulation, and government monetary policy is causing what many see as a later cycle VC bubble. At early and Series A-C stage, I dont see a bubble. I do see lot of startups compared to ten years ago. But, that isnt necessarily a bubble. Its people sensing the same opportunity.
