    Right now, I believe there’s a bubble going on with classic cars. It’s downfall is coming from the number of older car owners (boomers) who have rode the wave of inflating the prices for so long. Now they’re getting older, and cannot enjoy their cars or downsizing. Their kids don’t want or can’t afford to keep them and the cars are flooding the market. Younger buyers either don’t have the money to pay the inflated prices or have no desire to since younger people aren’t willing to pay for “nostalgia” like the current owners have. In my opinion, this will result into a bubble.

    That's a fancy way of saying the slave trade.

    The intro would have been better if you used a bubble instead of a flower. Use a bubble blower, ask "so what is a bubble?" and then pop it.

    I think Tech stocks are in a bubble. Amazon, Microsoft and Apple aren't worth as much as they are right now.

    Next bubble lies in Silicon Valley! Too many copy cat products/services, let alone the fraudsters ....fake it till you make it.... valuations becoming a JOKE! Individual/Institutional investors are pouring the money without realising the financial structure and foundation of startups are weak. Unlike 2008, banks are stronger now....however, people have been caught in the euphoria of these startups! Valuations in billions while yet to make break even nor profit is depressing. The storm is coming!
